Arts & Cultural Alliance of Jackson County (ACAJC) announces a day for Jackson-area artists, performers, and creatives to promote arts and culture in Jackson County.
Arts In Jackson Day will take place Tuesday, Oct. 25, 2016, in conjunction with International Artists Day. ACAJC encourages Jackson County artists to promote themselves, their work, and their businesses on social media using the hashtag #artsinjackson throughout the day.
“Arts In Jackson Day is a way to help local creatives makes themselves known,” says Kate Schwartz, director of ACAJC. “And as the arts and cultural organization in the county, we hope to help them spread the word.”
Throughout the day, artists, musicians, and cultural professionals in Jackson County are encouraged to:
- Share images of their work
- Post videos of their performances
- Post sales information for their artwork
- Spread the word about other creatives they know
- Promote upcoming arts and cultural events
By using the hashtag #artsinjackson, ACAJC will repost or retweet their social media messages to other artists and creatives. For those who do not use social media, ACAJC recommends artists use their other promotional means to spread the word – including email, websites, and events.
During the day, ACAJC will also work to advocate for arts and culture to local elected officials, media representatives, and business leaders in Jackson County.
“It’s important for everyone in Jackson to know the impact of arts and culture,” Schwartz says. “The arts create jobs, contribute tax dollars to local government, and make the community a more enjoyable, livable place.”
To participate, follow ACAJC on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, and use the hashtag #artsinjackson during the October 25 activities.
