This month, I am the “Creative Of The Month” over at ODCNashville.com! ODC stands for Organized Distraction Collective. It’s the brainchild of Reis O’Neill. Here’s a snippet from the website on what they’re about.
ODC (Organized Distraction Collective) is a members only collective of creative professionals in local to the greater Nashville area. A “Creative” is a person who creates anything using skill and talent. Once a creative hones his or her craft to the point of it becoming their career they are to be considered professional creatives. Most professional creatives strive to connect with the public directly. On the flip-side, the average person can not find the majority of independent contractors online and if they are able to be found they are grossly under-represented.
WE PERSONALLY STAND BEHIND EVERY MEMBER
ODCnashville.com is not only going to provide a free solution to having a professional presentation that is a perfect add-on to promote any and all web marketing currently available for each member (websites, social networks, etc.), It will introduce a lot of skilled people, form alliances, and create opportunity for each and every member.
After reading that, I figured it was a pretty cool idea. What could it hurt to sign up? As an artist trying to promote yourself, you need to be everywhere. Well, I’ve been really impressed since signing up. ODC has been great to me early on (including the “Creative Of The Month” mention). They’ve come out to support me at a show. They’ve also put me on their official launch party show which is tonight at French Quarter Cafe.
