Ars Media Arts Group also offers internship opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students who wish to elevate their training and skills. The group has been actively promoting creative awareness in the Washington, D.C. area since it was developed. The group has gone as far as Atlanta in Georgia, Charlotte City in North Carolina, Miami in Florida, and other key cities. Over the years, the organization has successfully provided more than 500 promising opportunities for journalists, photographers, visual artists, bloggers, musicians, DJs, and videographers from all over the country.
Ars Media Arts Group co-founder and Executive Director Torland Greene Jr. thought of establishing the group in order to help creatives learn, develop, and sustain their businesses that are inclined towards fashion, content creation, and art. The 32-year-old visual artist, designer, and entrepreneur from Manassas, Virginia, is responsible for identifying creatives and their need for resources. Once they have been identified, the group helps them come up with marketing strategies, partnerships, study groups, and fundraisers to help draw attention to their creative projects and brands.
As one who is seasoned in the area of marketing, branding, and visual aesthetics, Torland is adding value to the output of their interns by elevating their understanding of how the fashion, art, and design businesses operate.
“Our Brand Developed Service is a top to bottom unique brand building service that teaches the entrepreneur how to market, who to market to and where placement is most valuable! We pride ourselves on building rapport with top brands that want to shine some light on visual artists, designers and creative entrepreneurs. Bridging the gap between mainstream platforms and emerging creatives with opportunities to collaborate, receive sponsorship and build long lasting business relationships,” the Ars Media Arts Group co-founder explains.
The group also aims to develop more than 500 artists, brands, or creatives combined. One of its major objectives in the next few years is to own a small workshop space that will provide an avenue for creatives to access resources and an avenue where they can develop their ideas freely.
