COLLABORATIVE MARKETING INITIATIVES
ArtsWestchester strives to encourage collaboration and cooperation within the arts community. Our collaborative marketing initiatives provide a mechanism for organizations to pool their expertise and their marketing dollars to disseminate information about related events.
Music In The Air
This campaign is designed to promote the many free and affordable outdoor music events that take place in Westchester County each summer. With 250+ events in every corner of the county this summer, there’s something for everyone…view the complete schedule for summer 2010 here. Our 2009 and 2010 Music in the Air campaigns included the promotion of over 90 concerts that were presented in public locations throughout the county. Promotions include a direct mail piece, flyers and posters, print and web-based advertising.
There is strength in numbers. ArtsWestchester helps our affiliates stretch their advertising dollars by providing the opportunity to participate in cooperative, themed advertisements in publications such as the Westchester County Travel Guide and the New York Times. Advertising opportunities are listed under ‘Affiliate News’ as they become available.
All Fired Up
What happens when an entire county gets ‘all fired up’ about one art form? In October and November of 2008, ArtsWestchester, in partnership with the Clay Art Center, introduced Westchester residents to the myriad of ways that clay can be transformed into art. Seventy concurrent ceramics exhibitions took place in every corner of the county, complemented by workshops, teacher training, symposia, films and other special events. 68 arts organizations pooled their resources to make it all happen. In the end, and estimated 57,000 visitors came to see the exhibitions, creating an economic impact of $2,949,750
