Artists and arts organizations across the Cincinnati Region will be showcased during BLINK®

If you're an artist or args organization, you can become a Friend of BLINK® through ArtsWave's new collaborative programming and marketing initiative, Local Illuminations. This initiative will spotlight innovative and creative projects that exist alongside and complement BLINK's main theme of "play" this October 13-16.

To get involved...

  1. Create or choose an event, exhibition or project that aligns with and is relevant to BLINK's theme of "play." Make sure it's running during BLINK (October 13-16). Your selection can precede or extend after, but it must be running or on display during those days.

  2. Upload your selected event, exhibition or project to ArtsWave Guide and select the "Local Illuminations" category. Log in or create an account to enter your event.

  3. Incorporate the assets from the "Local Illuminations" brand guidelines into your own marketing and communications efforts, including ad design, social media and messaging (examples are in the guidelines)

When you and your organizations get involved in Local Illuminations, you'll become a part of the significant media and collaborative marketing efforts that ArtsWave is planning on behalf of the initiative, including paid ads, social, earned media, printed maps and more.
