Wanderway Navigating the Digital Engagement Landscape

Wanderway is a free online course that guides you through the nuts and bolts of digital engagement—from getting started on new platforms to honing your voice and connecting with audiences.

Whether you’re an independent artist or part of a nonprofit organization, creative small business, collaborative group, or other organization, the activities in this course will help you build meaningful relationships online.

As an unfacilitated course with online, workbook, and workshop resources, you can go at your own pace or adjust the activities to fit your needs and workflow. Instead of giving you fixed “instructions” (how often should I post, what, where?) or marketing advice (how can we monetize this?), Wanderway encourages you to cultivate online engagement as a practice that suits your work, voice, and needs. Wanderway is designed to provide inspiration and skills that will help you become more effective while also avoiding burnout.  

Get to know your online self, test new waters, and befriend the flexibility demanded by the evolving digital terrain.
