Help with promotion

If you require help promoting your arts or cultural event, workshop, exhibition or opportunity within our Eastern Riverina Arts network, we may be able to help you.

We receive hundreds of requests for assistance in promotion each year. We can’t fulfil all requests but if your promotional materials meet our guidelines it will certainly give you a better chance of getting on our radar, so we can help you.

Social Media & eNews

When sending your information to Eastern Riverina Arts for possible circulation via social media and artEfacts eNews please make sure you include:

  • a good clear landscape proportioned or square image in jpeg or png format that is NOT a flyer – include a caption and also appropriate ALT (descriptive text) e.g. An image of a man wearing blue jeans and a white shirt, painting a picture of a black and white cow). Also include image credit if applicable e.g. Photo by Fred Thompkinson.
  • 2-3 paragraphs of information
  • Date, time & location information
  • Any links to booking/tickets
  • Links to further information
  • Links to your social media
  • A link to a Facebook event if you have one
  • Any hashtags you want to use – we like #creativeriverina #easternriverinaarts – but you may have your own – using hashtags is a great way to grow your audience on Instagram in particular
  • Any tags you want to use – you might like to tag an artist, partner or sponsor/funder e.g. @creatensw @thecadfactory

artEfacts (eNews) is sent out around the middle of each month to our subscribers. Our social media channels are updated at least 3 times a week, usually more.

We aim to post between 5 and 10 Instagram and Facebook posts per week.

DON’T FORGET – Facebook events – you can invite us to be co-hosts which will get your event into our Facebook events page! Facebook events are a must to get into peoples’ feeds.
