Bubble Shooters Network

By Boudewien Chalmers Hoynck van Papendrecht

We create engagement with art

Welcome

Bubble Shooters Network is an audience engagement agency for the art world.

We stand for opening up our online bubbles to create relevant connections around art with real people. Using social media as a tool to broaden awareness and engagement around the Arts.

We create practical and no-nonsense strategies focussed on topics like:

  1. How can art speak to a broad(er) / new audience?
  2. How to tell the story of art to an international audience?
  3. How to engage people with art (fairs, museums and galleries)?

Our work consists of creating online brands and positioning strategies, art direction, content strategies, community building and care and day to day social media management. We work with behavioural- and data analysis, have years of experience with social media and the art world, and have a network of specialists.

The company was founded in 2021 by Boudewien Chalmers Hoynck van Papendrecht (27) in its first year, we have worked together with a broad range of clients from DRIFT, PAN Amsterdam and the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
