We’re very excited about the CIPP program: a hands-on seminar on practical outreach methods that every conservator can use successfully. This seminar will have two presenters.

1:00 P.M. to 2:15 P.M

Ann Shaftel will present “Conservation Outreach on Television, Radio and Print”

Ann has extensive experience in Conservation Outreach: she has presented on live-to-air TV, for six years was radio expert on a live-to-air phone-in show, and also wrote a newspaper column for four years on conservation.

Conservation Outreach in today’s media rich world requires specific technical skills. It is radically different working contentedly as a Bench Conservator, to communicating flawlessly under the pressure of “lights, camera and action” in a live-to-air appearance. And yet another skill set is required to be a successful newspaper columnist.

Ann will offer advice on what to do in front of microphone and camera, illustrated with clips of her own successful and unsuccessful media appearances.

2:15 to 5:00 P.M.

The second part of the afternoon is an entry level, hands-on workshop to help you get started creating an Internet presence in a simple, easy, fast and fun way. Scott M. Haskins, painting conservator, will help you customize your efforts, strategies and methods to meet your personality and type of business. This information is essential for business survival.

In this workshop you will see, learn and create for yourself:

– Simple video creation for free (even without a video camera)

– Posting videos for free

– Creating a blog for free

– How to drive traffic to your blog for free

– How to do the above with minimal time commitment – automation

Workshop participants should bring their laptop and be ready to work online.

Sign up early: Pre-CIPP meeting “homework” will be required and materials will be sent out. To receive the “homework” you must email Scott after you have signed-up to the Seminar. FACLARTDOC@GMAIL.COM

NOTE: This is a super easy, entry level hands on instructional workshop.

If you want to know more about Scott’s Internet capabilities, Google “Scott M. Haskins” and “Fine Art Conservation Laboratories” (use the quotes) and go to YouTube channel “bestartdoc”. Pack a lunch… you’ll be there awhile.
