ALP is expanding – call for art critics who embrace social media

ArtListPro is looking to expand its media footprint over the Toronto area with quick, positive and snappy video / blog posts of gallery exhibit reviews and arts interviews.

We are seeking 4-5 people across the Toronto area who are keen to do video reviews of art exhibits and post them on youtube and vimeo.

The selected ALP art critics will choose what artists / events / galleries interest them for review. They will video and upload their videos and this will be posted on Art Listings Professional.

The selected candidates will own their own reviews and can / should have their own blogs & contact info that ALP links to with each post.

We are looking for people who understand what we do is free and always will be, and do not seek ownership or licensing rights or any of that nonsense. The value of ALP is in the popularity, community and uniqueness of the service.

Ideally each critic would do 4-5 video reviews each month, and each should be between 1 minute to 10 minutes in length. There should be no editing and video from a cell phone or flip camera is perfectly acceptable.

Art Listings Professional is permission based and we only review work that is implied or expressly allowed to be reproduced onto the web.

You may do interviews with any “co-host” you choose or even apply as a team.

Look forward to working with a group of dynamic and outgoing art lovers! Our plan is to expand into TV / Print as well as garner sponsorship interest so we are looking for committed individuals.

-comfortable with “live” reviews and interviews (no editing afterwards)

-owns own digital video/audio device

-comfortable with uploading videos to youtube or vimeo

-gift of the gab

-passionate about the arts

The ideal candidates will be outgoing, have a keen interest in arts and culture and enjoy interviewing artists and seeking out independent venues for review. Becoming an Art Listings Professional critic / host will be of great benefit to anyone seeking experience and exposure as a personality for art criticism, journalism, improv, comedy and social media.

You do not have to be an “art expert” to be considered – you just have to have fun and not be afraid to talk about art shows. ALP’s vision is to attract people to their local galleries who otherwise may be intimidated until they see our casual and somewhat goofy art critic style ūüôā

Art Listings Professional is an arts blog based in Toronto, Canada. Developed to take advantage of emerging channels in social media, ALP has made a mark on the arts scene since it’s inception a year ago with video reviews, interviews, maps and blog posts.

ALP was also created to help market smaller but worthy galleries that may not have the advertising budget that larger galleries and museums do.
