Share some love for your struggling cultural sector with #LoveBristolArts

19th October 2020

Categories: Latest News

Fans of art and culture are being encouraged to share some love for the artists, venues and companies they are missing most during 2020 using #LoveBristolArts.

From 19-23 October, Bristol Arts Marketing Network and Arts Marketing Bath are launching a collaborative campaign, mobilising audiences and organisations to support Bristol and Bath’s arts and culture sector at this challenging time.

As an alternative to the Culture Flash Sale, which would normally be announced around this time of year, #LoveBristolArts will encourage locals to reach out to their favourite artists, companies and venues, presenting ways to offer real support.

There are so many things that people can do to help, from buying tickets, memberships and giving donations to free help, such as subscribing to mailing lists, following social media channels and taking a minute to fill out surveys. Even just hitting like, rather than scrolling by, has the power to raise profiles, build relationships and amplify awareness.

Across a week of action, each day will focus on a different area of the sector:

  • Monday: Launch day!
  • Tuesday: Art Galleries, Venues & Visitor Attractions
  • Wednesday: Independent Artists & Collectives
  • Thursday: Arts Companies & Freelancers
  • Friday: Final day!

To get the conversation going, a list of ten ways you can support has been drawn up but each artist, organisation and venue will share their own top three on social media so you can check out how best to get involved.

  1. Subscribe to mailing list
  2. Follow on social media
  3. Visit an exhibition, event, venue or activity
  4. Share content
  5. Watch a video or join a livestream or online event
  6. Become and friend, member or supporter
  7. Write to you MP
  8. Donate to a campaign
  9. Leave a TripAdvisor review
  10. Tell a friend to do something on this list and share #LoveBristolArts
