Hi AA2A Artists,
Some of you may have been wondering whether you'll be able to continue using this site after you've finished your scheme. The plan is that you can continue to use Dotbiz, but only the new year's artists' mugshots, blogs and image albums will appear on the home page. That way, both you, your college and AA2A nationally will continue to have a record of your AA2A project and see what you're doing in the future if you continue to use the site. We also hope it'll help artists to keep in touch with each other, post AA2A.
Whilst we are hoping to be able to keep it open for you in this way - if we are not able to we will always give you at least a months notice before making changes either to your access or material on the site.
If for any reason you don't wish to continue to using the site please let us know so we can remove you from the site.
There have been some great blogs reflecting on the scheme this week (thanks to Andrew Dalton and Helen Dearnley) Don't forget that your blogs and images albums from this site provide a fantastic record of your work on the scheme and can be printed off/or saved as a pdf and could be added to your promotional folder, or used in support of future applications for research/study/residencies...etc. Also if you haven't used the site much/at all yet - I'd like to reassure you that it's not too late! Last year we had a brilliant series of catch up blogs produced in retrospect - and they were still valuable to the artists/students/colleges.
Lastly we're always keen to know your progress, so whether you let us know by using the exhibitions listings on this site and/or send us an email so we can update the AA2A.org exhibition list; please also make sure you update the links on your dotbiz profile - particularly if you have your own website or blog regularly on another site.
Any questions feel free to send me a message through this site or email firstname.lastname@example.org
