Utilizing a strong network of French and international arts contacts that we have developed throughout our careers, Art Talk Write can help you to effectively communicate and promote your arts practice, exhibition or project, with successful results. As part of these services, we can also help you to develop a personalized mailing list. Some of our other specific Communication services are listed below, all of which are provided in French and English.
Websites and social media – design and content
Art Talk Write can create and manage visually appealing and interesting websites and social media accounts. We can also oversee and regularly update the content of your existing accounts. This includes editing texts and writing new content, and uploading pictures and videos, when you have a new exhibition, event or project to promote, or new artworks to share. Art Talk Write can provide this as a one-off or a regular monthly service.
Portfolio – design and content
We can help you to create a new professional portfolio or to up date your existing one, including translation,* to showcase your artwork online or for contacting galleries, open call and residency opportunities.
For our Portfolio service, we offer three options:
- Portfolio content: Assistance with selecting or improving your images, writing or editing your texts and layout advice. This option can be done in French and/or English.
- Portfolio design: Art Talk Write will design a professional and visually attractive portfolio using the content you provide. French or English translation can be requested.
- Portfolio content + design: This complete package combines both the two previous service options.
*If you would like your existing portfolio translated only, please contact us to discuss a translation quote.
Our Artist Profile is specifically designed to be about you and your practice, combining your images, biography, artist statement* and contact details, in a one-page document. This professional promotional tool can be sent directly to the galleries and art spaces of your choice either by Art Talk Write or yourself, or it can be used as an exhibition text for visitors, in project submissions or to contact the press. The Artist Profile is provided in both email and PDF format and can be done in French and/or English.
* You can also request texts to be written by Art Talk Write.

Newsletters – creation and distribution
Art Talk Write offers a regular French, English or bilingual newsletter service to keep the art world informed about your current and upcoming projects, or just to stay in touch with your network. We can create and mail-out a monthly newsletter to your art contacts, the press industry or any other connections important to you. We can also create and send out a newsletter when you require it, whether it be weekly or biannually, or just for a specific period.
Our professional press and media services include writing eye-catching press releases, and distribution to regional, national and international industry contacts. We can be on call to respond to press enquiries, helping you to organise interviews and select suitable images. We can also contact press professionals on your behalf, to ask about the possibility of featuring your artwork, exhibition or project, in a specific publication or on a website.
Assistance with mediation and guided tours in English
In your gallery, exhibition space, museum, visual arts centre or institute, would you like to organise tours, events or activities to better reach your English speaking audience? Art Talk Write offers affordable, practical and dynamic individual or group training, to work with you to build your confidence and/or to develop and write an oral dialogue specific to your exhibitions, projects or events.
English language services for the visual arts
As both a visual arts professional and a qualified English teacher, Altair also offers assistance with all aspects of written and oral English for the visual arts. She can help individuals or groups with single projects or create courses specific to your needs.
