Off the Hook Arts’ Alcove is an online forum to provide a space for artists to come together during this uncertain time. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected essentially all aspects of life; however, the arts community is feeling the loss and grief of what was once “normal.” Artists can no longer use their platform to bring groups of people together physically, but here at OtHA we aren’t going to let that stop us.
The Arts’ Alcove recognizes artists of any kind – musicians, writers, actors, etc. – to submit their work virtually. Once work is uploaded to our website, a support button will allow viewers to enjoy the works and make a donation that benefits both the artist, and at their discretion, OtHA. Essentially, the Arts’ Alcove plays the role of an online gallery as a platform for artists to exhibit their creativity during these uncertain times, people to enjoy and support their favorite artists, and discover new artists to love.
“The Arts’ Alcove is a creative, clever, kind, collaborative, constructive idea, and I hope our audiences enjoy it. Artists and art lovers need to support each other right now, and the Arts’ Alcove is a perfect way to lead. Thank you!”
This week on the Arts’ Alcove Podcast, Dom and our guest Vi Wickam get into the nitty gritty of what it takes to release an album today.
“There’s a whole team of people that are required to get an album out the door; and then to promote it. So it’s not enough to just create an album that’s a good album.”
You’ll have to tune in to find out whether putting an album into the world today is easier or harder than it used to be! Listen to this week’s episode of the Arts’ Alcove Podcast below, on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, or wherever you listen to podcasts.
