Getting Bums in Seats
- Posted by Brad Walker on February 23rd, 2012
As an Executive in Residence (Arts Marketing) at Calgary Arts Development, it has been a complete honour to meet with nearly twenty-five arts organizations and individual artists over the last two months. You can learn more about the Executive in Residence program here.
Generally, there is one consistent question: “...We’re/I’m looking for ways to sell more tickets and get people through the door, we are the hidden gem in the City of Calgary!” So, with much anticlimactic fanfare, this is the first of a few personal blogs over the coming weeks with what I hope will act as knowledge/background/tools for...GETTING BUMS IN SEATS.
TOOL #1 | Publicity: You want it, you desire it and you think everyone should know everything you are doing. But who cares about you...or your work?
In the meantime, if you are interested in meeting with me one-on-one as part of the Executive in Residence program, request a consultation here.
