“You’re a group or an artist and spend most of your time mar­ket­ing your­self or mak­ing your­self visible?”

“You’ve already built a fan­base and hit­ting your lim­its and need straight­for­ward, pro­fes­sion­al help that keeps you focused, struc­tured and takes work off your plate?”

“You’re a new­com­er, just start­ing out with your art, peo­ple like you but your fan­base isn’t get­ting any big­ger even though you’re doing every­thing you can to make it happen?”

“You always craft alone and would love to net­work with oth­er artists who think like you?”

“Actu­al­ly, you don’t even like the hus­tle and bus­tle on the net and see it, for bet­ter or worse, as your means to an end and could use your time for more impor­tant things?”

The “Art Cross­ing Bor­ders” Asso­ci­a­tion, an asso­ci­a­tion of active artists from all dis­ci­plines, have found­ed the ini­tia­tive BAAM, who work with­out their own prof­it motives for new free spaces and free­dom of devel­op­ment, in order to work with you sys­tem­at­i­cal­ly towards the goal of being able to live from your art.

Pro­fes­sion­al forces from the indus­try will work along­side you to help you achieve your goals. Also, if need­ed, you will be net­worked with­in the board with all cre­atives from dif­fer­ent art dis­ci­plines and togeth­er we will devel­op new for­mats that will increase your impact.

WHAT IS BAAM?

BAAM is a Basic Artist for Artist Man­age­ment Board, where indus­try pro­fes­sion­als will help you with the basic work. They han­dle peak work­loads, devel­op strate­gies with you as the cap­tain, net­work with oth­ers and tap into the pow­er and syn­er­gies of the com­mu­ni­ty. BAAM is financed by a com­mon pot into which Art Cross­ing Bor­ders e.V. and the par­tic­i­pants contribute.

What does BAAM do?

BAAM opti­mizes and ana­lyzes your posts and con­tent so that they are bet­ter found by your fans. The same strate­gies are used as those of the major play­ers in the indus­try. Tech­niques that are so tech­ni­cal that you would have to watch 100 online videos to be able to apply them your­self. With­in the BAAM Board you have a very per­son­al con­tact per­son who knows you, shows you new pos­si­bil­i­ties, works in your inter­est and some­times steps in when things get busy. He pub­lish­es agreed post­ings, can cut a video teas­er or remind you of impor­tant mile­stones to work with you towards the goal of being able to make a liv­ing from your work.

BAAM is at the same time a broad net­work of artists from var­i­ous fields. Togeth­er with oth­ers, new for­mats, ideas and col­lab­o­ra­tions are cre­at­ed that enrich your work. Who is doing your live broad­cast? Who tai­lors the clothes for your video? Need a giant poster or look­ing for some­one to do a drone or laser show? What’s your next assign­ment? Why not cre­ate some­thing great togeth­er? BAAM coor­di­nates and net­works you.

Services

Here we pro­vide an overview of BAAM’s ser­vices, which are intend­ed to cov­er a wide spec­trum to give pro­gram par­tic­i­pants back time to do what real­ly mat­ters: make great art. Our obser­va­tion is that talk­ing with achiev­ers very quick­ly releas­es an under­stand­ing of the process and ener­gy, because it is sim­ply eas­i­er to work out a strat­e­gy with oth­ers than on one’s own.

A voice

Art Cross­ing Bor­ders is plan­ning for the future the B.A.A.M. Board as a voice for change in pol­i­cy and indus­try. Artists, like many oth­er groups in the dig­i­tal econ­o­my, are heav­i­ly depen­dent on the big plat­forms. They gen­er­ate the con­tent and ideas from which these play­ers make their prof­its while dom­i­nat­ing the mar­ket and set­ting the prices. So far, there is no effec­tive coun­ter­part rep­re­sent­ing the inter­ests of artists.
