Conversationally speaking

To fully engage with their community, artists need words. Lots of words. They need to tell stories, provide explanations for some of the tough decisions in their creative process, or post some grandiose Artist's Statement to carve out a niche for themselves. Sometimes too, they just need to chat companionably with friends and supporters. So Conveaux provides multiple channels for chat, instant message, email, blogging, and bulletin board discussion. These can (and should be) crosslinked into various other areas of our ecosystem, funneling traffic from hot topics into gallery viewership, retail sales, fundraising campaigns, etc.
