Involve Your Local CommunityAn art event can reach more people than you could anticipate. You can invite all of your creative friends and connect to local art organizations. This way, you can provide a variety of options to the attendees. You can invite painters, photographers, wood sculptors, paper sculpture artists, and other artists who use various media in their work. Additionally, connect with other organizations, local charities, and local business sponsors to help out too. In return, you can help to raise donations during the event. Local businesses can also promote their brand while also giving away simple freebies.
Plan Up to the Last Detail
It is vital to creating a to-do list. You have too many things to consider and you can’t afford to overlook something. A small detail now can grow into a big concern at the event itself. Consider the event area, parking, number of artists, event day and time, decors, signs, marketing and promotions, people to contact and crowd management.
Find an Event AnchorEvery event needs a well-known artist who pull people together – an anchor artist. Connect with an anchor artist a few months before an event. This can ensure that the artist has free time to attend the event. This will instantly create a buzz in the art community and will give it more credibility.
Make a Catchy Name
The name of your event can incite interests, curiosity and an instant vibe. Find a theme and a name that will be both catchy and memorable for the local community. You can also choose a name that actually describes the event. Let’s say you want to focus in food art, then you can use “Eat Your Art Out” as your event name. If your event is about visual art, you can name it as “Arts Therapy,” “Disquiet Art,” or “Gift Art a Home.”
The more people who know the event, the more attendees and participants will join in. You have to create a social media page for the event, print flyers, and posters, send emails and even create a webpage if you can. Make your promotions consistent no matter the medium you use.
Organizing an art event will take a lot of time, effort, patience, and planning. It can also cause anxiety when things are not done as planned. However, take note that some things out of your plan are bound to happen. Keep your cool and always handle things in the most professional way.
This way you can create the best and most memorable art event your community will talk about.
