Due to the special nature of Voluntary Arts Week, it’s worth flagging up your event to all the usual channels – then pushing the boat out even further.
- Local newspapers, radio stations, online forums, community magazines and libraries are a great place to start.
- Social media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter (your own, and the Voluntary Arts Week ones) are a great way to generate interest for your event. If you’re mentioning your event on Twitter, be sure to use the #voluntaryartsweek hashtag so we can help you spread the word even further
- Poster and/or flyers are a great way to reach a local audience. Use our free marketing material to badge your event as part of Voluntary Arts Week and display these in your local community centre, libraries, shop windows to spread the word.
- List your event for free on the Voluntary Arts Week website, and we’ll spread the word far and wide, through both traditional media and the Voluntary Arts Week Facebook page and Twitter feed. We’ll be directing lots of people to the Voluntary Arts Week website – so make sure you’re on it!
