Whether you're currently studying or considering following a career in the creative world, Appraisium is a place where you can get feedback or advice from people who are already doing it.
Unlike most platforms where you display your work and anybody can comment, Appraisium allows you to choose who you want feedback from. You choose someone whose work you admire and whose advice will mean something.
All you do is set up a feedback request outlining what you want. Add a few tags to the request and Appraisium will match those tags to people who may be able to help. Once you've checked out their profile you can invite them to feedback on your work or give you some advice.
We all recognise that professionals engaging with students is good for their development. It helps them connect with the real world and improves their chances of finding work.
The process is simple, a student will add a feedback request to Appraisium and invite the professionals who are on the system to give feedback. If you're one of the professionals chosen you will receive an email request. It will contain all the details of what the student is asking and you can respond to the email or login to give feedback.
Once you've given feedback there's nothing more to do, it isn't a conversation.
Appraisium offers support to your students from people who are actually working in the creative industry. You can add your course lecturers and assign their students to them. The students will use Appraisium as normal, but your lecturers will be able to see the feedback/advice the students are getting.
You can contact the professionals that gave feedback to your students and invite them to give lectures, attend end of year shows or just to meet the students. Ultimately you will be able to use Appraisium to promote your courses.
