Communion is an interactive artist talk series that is geared towards reaching and teaching today’s web-centric audience. Each month, an up-and-coming artist or designer is selected to be featured. Audience members are encouraged to ask the questions they want answered via Twitter by tweeting to @_1stcommunion. Blanc selects our favorite questions from social media and incorporates them into a documentary-style video.
The goal of Communion is not only to teach young artists about technique, practice, and the art of entrepreneurship, but also to encourage interaction between emerging artists. Blanc works in collaboration with each artist featured on Communion to create a collectible and limited-run poster design as well. The posters are given to those with the best interview questions as a way to provide a tactile and long lasting experience with each Communion artist.
