Communications Workshop for Galleries

Frustrated by a constant stream of inadequate information art galleries keep circulating Mary Corrigall has designed a workshop to assist in navigating the fast-changing media landscape. Creating an online presence via social media platforms with the use of texts and images that align with your art brand is also addressed.  How do you deal with the press in a 'press-less' age? 

Choreographing Gender

Contemporary Dance writing workshop facilitated and curated by Mary Corrigall. It was sponsored by the Goethe-Institut to tie in with the 2015 Dance Umbrella. Guests included Nelisiwe Xaba, Constanza Macras. 

Art and the SA mass media

A workshop to guide artists on how best to communicate with the media. Corrigall clues artists into the South African media landscape, outlining the media groups and how a media outlet operates. She guides participants on who to target their communications and how best to craft them. 

Beyond Borders: Making art across disciplines and geographic boundaries

An intensive dance writing workshop, organised by Dance Umbrella Festival and the Goethe-Institut, and facilitated by arts commentator, consultant and curator Mary Corrigall. The workshop will take place at the Dance Forum in Newtown, Johannesburg, from 2 to 5 February and from 22 to 23 February 2016.

Writing Artist Statements

Corrigall helps artists to identify the core values and qualities of their practice or a body work and teaches them how to succinctly translate these into texts for the consumption of art specialists or the public
