REBECCA THOMSON

Rebecca Thomson volunteers as the TAE Official blogger and attended the 2017 TAE in Stratford
upon Avon where she helped live tweet the event.  In writing the blog posts Rebecca hopes to keep the amazing TAE community connected throughout the year by sharing the stories and experiences of artists, buyers, charities and the organisers.

Everybody loves hearing about the artists so there will be Artists Interviews; we’ll also hear from the buyers of the postcards and what the artwork means to them. Blogs with TAE news updates and stories from the recipient Charities will remind and uplift us of the huge amount of good that Twitter Art Exhibit achieves. Rebecca hopes that her small contribution will help keep people talking and supporting this fantastic exhibition.

ADAM BRANT

Adam Brant volunteers as a TAE Official Blogger and has donated an art postcard to each of the TAE’s to date. His volunteering role involves helping to create content for the TAE blog and newsletter. Adam hopes his contribution will help to inspire people to continue supporting the exhibition.

Adam will be aiming to help TAE supporters get to know some of the fantastic people who enable the exhibition to happen each year, feel better connected with the growing TAE community, and discover more about the different people the exhibition has helped. He’ll be sharing stories from artists, curators, board members and buyers, along with updates from the charities who have benefited from the support of the TAE.
