WHAT IS THE ARTS ARE OPEN?
The Arts Are Open is a digital welcome back campaign created by the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture (ARTS) to amplify the region’s arts and culture sector. With the devastating effects COVID-19 continues to have on our creative communities, this campaign aims to create a simple, fun, and collaborative way for our arts organizations to collectively promote our programs and call the greater community to support the arts economy.
Launching in October, The Arts Are Open campaign will have an accessible digital toolkit for arts organizations and artists to use and integrate into their upcoming event/program promotions. ARTS and our partners will actively share and amplify events/programs that use the campaign elements.
Now’s the time to support your favorite artists and creatives, visit your local art spaces, and celebrate the resiliency and strength of the arts!
HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE?
Any and all artists, arts organizations, and arts-related individuals/collectives are invited to participate in this digital campaign.
How you can get involved:
- Use the Toolkit: Use the digital toolkit below and incorporate the branded graphics and hashtag (#TheArtsAreOpen) to your upcoming program or event’s digital promotions.
- Your Events = Amplified: ARTS and our partners will be actively following the hashtag and amplify posts from the community.
- Support Fellow Arts Orgs: We also encourage you to support your fellow artists and arts organizations by sharing their upcoming programs and events.
THE DIGITAL TOOLKIT
Below are some samples of the assets included in the toolkit. You can integrate social graphics, digital stickers, GIFs, and more into your upcoming promotions.
If you don’t have image editing software like Adobe, we’ve also made these materials available on Canva, a FREE platform, so that you can easily utilize the branding. Visit the toolkit above for the full list of assets!
