Art Management Master Course: Arts Marketing & Crowdfunding
First part, Art Marketing. We read the theories of Arts Marketing by Keith Diggle and François Colbert.
第一部份，藝術行銷。我們閱讀了Keith Diggle及François Colbert的藝術行銷理論。
Keith Diggle is the initiator of the Arts Marketing, a professional who worked in theatres. He originated “Art Marketing” in 1976. Diggle’s definition is “The aim of Arts Marketing is to bring an appropriate number of people, drawn from the widest possible range of social background, economic condition and age, into an appropriate form of contact with the artist and to arrive at the best financial outcome that is compatible with the achievement of the aim.”
Next, François Colbert is a Canadian professor who theorized completely Arts Marketing in 1994. Colbert’s definition is “Marketing is the art of reaching those market segments that may potentially be interested in the product, adapting commercial variables (price, distribution and promotion), to a product, to put the product in contact with a sufficient number of consumers in order to achieve the objectives consistent with the mission of the company.” Besides, Colbert’s conceptual structure is:
PRODUCT → MIS (marketing information system) → MARKET → STRATEGY
產品 → MIS（行銷信息系統）→ 市場 → 策略
After that, we learn marketing mix that is another content within Arts Marketing. Marketing Mix includes product, place, people, price, distribution and promotion.
Second part, Crowdfunding. Crowdfunding refers to the practice of funding a project by raising financial contributions from a large number of people. It is a new form of Arts Marketing. Key elements of a Crowdfunding proposal contain video, idea description, photos, low contribution amounts, and rewards.
Homework of this topic is to write a crowdfunding proposal.
About my assignment – Contemporary Art Exhibition “Home” performed by the students of the international art school Accademia Riaci. Last week, I have searched some different artworks related to “home” on Internet for students’ reference. This week, I designed the image of this exhibition and prepared a PowerPoint presentation.
