Workshop "Here I Web"

Saturday, 7th of February from 12:30 to 18:30.
Location: Lucasbolwerk 18 IV.
Free participation for 10 people max.


A website is an essential platform for artists and creative professionals to present their work and skills to public and clients. Your website is often a great way to bust your public image. But to build and update a website that matches your artistic and professional expectations is often seen as difficult as a "Russian language course". That is why INTK is organizing this workshop.

The Workshop "Here I Web" will be about:
    * Start a website from scratch: buy domain, web hosting, etc;
    * Build web pages with easy editor; no experience required;
    * Prepare and upload content: pictures, movies, documents;
    * Setup and maintain a contact and mailinglists;
    * Update and do further developments to your website;

The Workshop "Here I Web" is facilitated by:

    * Justin Halsall is an experienced web designer working in Amsterdam (Wakoopa) and as a freelancer. He's webdesign kungfu can be seen at juice10.com/blog and tvnotify.com
    * Rui Guerra has a background in Computer Science and Fine Arts. He's experienced in building community websites like www.itsnotthatkind.org and undeaf.v2.nl .

The Workshop "Here I Web" is for artists and creative professionals eager to learn how to start, build and maintain their own website. Just bring your laptop!
