Creative Social Publicity and Promotion – SFU, 2016

sfu-class

From time to time, I visit various classes associated with B.C.’s Simon Fraser University’s fine publishing program under the stewardship of Suzanne Norman. This time around, the class was something about personal publicity and brand building. As such, I share anecdotes gleaned from Hootsuite and dozens of other personal social and community projects from over the years of activism, media outreach and marketing.

DaveO Storytime Series #idea

Have a notion for a new project to share my spiels:

“DaveO Storytime Series”

Gist: Interdisciplinary storytime lectures mixing history, culture, art, travel, socialness, literature, documentation, music, poetry, digressions, anecdotes and rambles etc. ~ with conversation.

Details: 1 per month at a friendly venue (preferably on North Shore) – 3rd Thursday of each month, 7-9PM.

Streamed to share anywhere
Filmed, recorded, documented, annotated
Participatory with all involved somehow, surprises encouraged

Topics: Order TDB, etc.

* Vancouver Counter-Culture Anecdotes
* Fuck Stats, Make Art
* Art and Tech are Old Pals
* Greeks to Geeks – History of personal media
* Varley in Vancouver
* Hitchhiking to the Boardroom
* Postcards from Elsewhere
* Letters from Russia
* Rock and Roll Photography
* Hemp Culture in Japan
* Roots and Branches of the Beats

Needs:

Venue (coffee shop with event space – comfortable and thrifty)

Someone to:

– produce each “episode” – keep me on track, motivated, help organize
– make a poster and promo materials
– manage door/ticket (brownpapertickets, eventbrite whatever)
– make high quality a/v recordings
– run livestream
– round-up artifacts coverage

Whatcha think? I’ll require a wee bit of help.

Robert Burns Poetry and Feast Night 2008 – Urban Vancouver #6

Snippets from a Robbie (Rabbie) Burns Night fest in Vancouver, BC on Feb. 09, 2008 at the Scottish Cultural Centre, celebrating the great renegade Scottish poet Robert Burns. The recordings include lectures, laughs, bagpipes, many toasts, various poem readings and tribute to a haggis.

Audio jumps around a wee bit but enjoy the moments nevertheless.

Notes on the white board from VFS Lecture

Using Social Media for Art Endeavours – Dave O Lecture at VFS

Lecture by me (Dave Olson) to Robert Scales‘ class at Vancouver Film School on March 29, 2007. My occasionally witty, yet sometimes convoluted banter, is laden with anecdotes on publishing, planning, development, outreach, promotion and collaboration, particularly about HempenRoad film project.
