Social Media Narratives Workshop

- / Online - Zoom


Please Join us for a Social Media Narratives Workshop led by FMC Artist in Residence, Claire Scherzinger. This workshop will take place online on Thursday March 4th, at 6:00pm on both the FMC and the Inc. Facebook Pages.

Claire will lead participants through Instagram as a tool for storytelling. Working within the parameters of limited timespan, and sequence, Claire will use their own work as an example of how artists can use this tool to create compelling stories. This workshop was live-streamed to Factory Media Centre and Hamilton Artist Inc. Facebook pages.

about the facilitator:

Claire Scherzinger depicts the uncanny as a way of resisting systems of power and considering better ways to live within western civilization. Scherzinger is an interdisciplinary artist working with digital and analog mediums to develop the core of her practice, which is the process of building new worlds. Although she uses different tools and media she approaches her practice with the internal logic of a painter.

Claire Scherzinger has a BFA in drawing and painting and creative writing from OCAD University and an MFA in interdisciplinary arts from the University of Victoria. Her work has appeared in exhibitions across Canada and internationally in the US and UK. She was a purchase prizewinner of the 2015 Royal Bank of Canada funded Painting Competition and was a finalist for the Equitable Bank Emerging Digital Artist Award. She was also the host of the art interview series podcast Overly Dedicated from 2017-2019 and is the creator behind the sci-fi audio drama ARCA-45672 with the support of the University of Victoria. Her work can be found in the RBC and EQ permanent collections.

This workshop is co-presented by Hamilton Artists Inc. and Factory Media Centre. Our Professional Development Workshops are made possible through funding support from the Incite Foundation for the Arts and the Canada Council for the Arts.
