It’s an exciting time here at C24 Towers now that the Connect10 voting period has opened – the amazing outreach that participating venues are doing to reach new audiences is really paying off.
- In 2012, over 20,000 votes were cast during 3 weeks.
- In 2013, over 30,000 public votes were cast during 2 weeks.
- So far this year, over 40,000 public votes have been cast – and the polls have only been open for 10 days!
If you want your voice to be heard in deciding where our ten artists will go to lead Museums at Night events, voting is open here until 5pm on Tuesday 28 January.
Publicity for your venue
If you’re looking at the publicity and media coverage that the Connect10 venues are receiving, you may be wondering how you can maximise the amount of PR that you’ll get if you run a Museums at Night event.
Our first PR deadline to register your events by is Friday 31 January.
Not sure how to register? Here’s a step-by-step guide explaining how to check whether your venue is listed on Culture24’s database, and how to upload your Museums at Night event listing.
We’re planning our event, but we’re not ready to register final details yet!
Pandora George and the team at Bullet PR are keen to hear from museums and galleries about their plans for Museums at Night 2014. They’re sending out a press release to monthly media in early February, so are very keen to hear what you’re planning – even it it is just an outline – by 31st January for inclusion in the first general release.
We are particularly interested in events that are quirky, fun and unexpected – the kind of things that don’t normally go on at your venue.
We also compile press releases according to themes, for example – “the best Museums at Night events for music/garden/art lovers” – so again, if you have any suggestions, let us know.
Finally, are also always looking for really strong press images to accompany your event. The best images will be included in our image library. Please email any suggestions or images to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to working with you all and making Museums at Night 2014 the best festival yet!
