Sam Davidson--Social Media and Arts Organizations

Last Friday, I met a guy named Sam Davidson. He ran a booth at the Green Business and Living Summit Expo. I just checked out his blog, and I found a bunch of interesting content about social media.

One of them was the following:

Yesterday, I performed on the stage of the Belcourt Theatre. This Nashville landmark has hosted the top musical acts, screened award-winning films and also served as a home for silent films and the Grand Ole Opry.

So, I have no idea why they let me come talk about social media on that same stage. But they did. And I did.

Here's a video from my talk. I flew through the whys of social media, particularly as it relates to nonprofit arts organizations. In these 15 minutes (that's all I had, so I speak very fast in this video), you'll hear:

A little more about me

What the old consumer model is (7:00)
What the new consumer model is (8:30)
How arts organizations can have a new conversation (11:15)
Some reminders before embarking on a social media campaign (12:45)
