Advertise to the arts commmunity!

Want to try some cost effective, targeted online marketing?

We'd love to help you.

We currently attract over 1800 unique website visitors a month... who are interested in the arts in all its forms. These are people who create, attend, or buy artistic works, and typically are quite locally-oriented in their buying habits, with some disposable income.

In addition, in March 2018, we are producing a tourism document demonstrating the depth and breadth of the creative life that occurs in our region, and distributing it far & wide. New advertising opportunities will be available in that for both creative workers and the businesses that support and benefit from them.
