Performing Arts Publicity: Triumphs and Challenges
A panel discussion featuring Sydney arts publicists.
Meet Sydney’s leading performing arts publicists in a discussion hosted by SAMAG about PR in the current challenging and fragmented media environment.
The Sydney Arts Management Advisory Group (SAMAG) presents a seminar for arts managers on publicity and communications.
Hosted by a panel of experienced local performing arts publicists, we’ll discuss the challenges of finding your voice in Sydney.
How do you get heard by the media? Are the challenges different for larger and smaller artists and organisations?
How has the publicity game evolved over the last decade?  And how are the 24-hour news cycle,
bloggers and Twitter changing publicity?  What are the challenges of internal communications in an arts organisation?
We’ll address these questions and more!
Chaired by Casula Powerhouse’s Kiersten Fishburn, the panel of speakers will include Griffin Theatre Company’s Siobhan Waterhouse,
Illumia’s Prue Vercoe and The Sydney Opera House’s Helene Fox.
Cost: FREE to 2012 SAMAG members. $10 for non-members / $5 for students
