Things we can do to help each other.

Instagram is an important space in the digital world, particularly for us visual artists. Whilst I’d be the last person to advocate walking around with your nose pressed against a smartphone it does seem that if we are serious about our work, putting it up on Instagram is a powerful way of reaching a wider audience and getting some positive feedback about what we’re up to.

As a business, we need to be exposed to as many artists as possible and Instagram and Facebook are good places for that to happen.

They both use these clever things called algorithms which work out what content to show which user. The more engagement that a post has the more exposure it will get. If you put up a post and your Dulwich Art Group mates like it and comment, it will get shown to more people and that is a good thing.


So here is the helping bit. Can we all agree to look out for each others posts, like them and try to think of a nice comment, even if it’s just a heart emoji? By doing this we will all help each other become better known, just one of the many steps we all have to take to becoming respected artists.

You can find us on instagram here @dulwichartgroup. You may like to follow us and if you put the hashtag #dulwichartgroup on any of your posts that you’d like us to notice, it will be easy for us to find, and like, comment and so on.

If you’re new to Instagram we urge you to give it a go read more here

You may notice that we are pausing the Wednesday morning group for the while.
