Do you have archival catalog content that you want to interpret, contextualize, give new meaning to and monetize? In this interactive four-part workshop, GRAMMY Award-nominated archival storytelling producer Jocelyn Arem uses a dynamic style to teach participants how to leverage the full value of their creative content by creating a strategy to reimagine it for new audiences. Develop a step-by-step project strategy to adapt, reimagine, and transform archival material into multimedia platforms that will turn “hidden” work into creative gold to support your portfolio and help empower your creative career. Participants will exchange ideas and connections, hear from guest speakers, workshop participant projects, learn about each other’s practices, and build long-term support.

You will come away from the workshop with:

A plan of action based on your project goals
A renewed sense of story and voice
Different ways to revitalize a story to add revenue streams to your career
Methods to engage in an intergenerational continuum within creative fields
A close community of informed peer artists
Artists of any medium are welcome, as we will be working with archival content from all creative backgrounds and across a variety of formats. In-between these sessions, participants will have access to an online forum where they can stay in touch, share information and resources, and build community outside of the class sessions.
