- Jamie Benson
Digital Marketing Consultant
Institution-less, rebel-clown artist, Jamie Benson defies performance traditions and dares a mass audience to interact. Heralded as "Chaplin-like” by Backstage West and “Insightful & Irreverent” by LA Weekly, Benson's highbrow meets lowbrow work has been presented around the US, across the international film festival circuit, within the Phaidon book Wild Art, and funded by the Brooklyn Arts Council.
My actioned-oriented labs aim to abolish self-destructive habits while inspiring a fun-first “big picture” outlook towards modern promotional pursuits. For brave souls participating in the creative economy, I indulge in a tough love approach, while wielding a relentless sense of humor, to shake up static modes of outreach.
As both an irreverent artist and guy who graduated magna cum laude from Baruch College with a BA in digital communications, I concoct daring and unconventional promotional methods that actually work. Places that have hired me to rant passionately include NYU Tisch, Dance NYC, CUNY Dance Initiative, NJCU Center for the Arts, Noel Pointer Foundation, Kupferberg Center for the Arts, The Actors Fund, and more.
I've also been told my presentations are a hell of a lot of fun. Let me prove it to you. Email email@example.com to learn more about setting up a presentation or training for your team, students, audience, etc.
