Arnolfini - est 1961

Fans of art and culture are being encouraged to share some love for the artists, venues and organisations they are missing most during 2020 using #LoveBristolArts.

From 19-23 October, Bristol Arts Marketing Network and Arts Marketing Bath are launching a collaborative campaign, mobilising audiences and organisations to support Bristol and Bath’s arts and culture sector at this challenging time.

There are so many things that people can do to help, from buying tickets, memberships and giving donations to free help, such as subscribing to mailing lists, following social media channels – #ing into posts and stories –  and taking a minute to fill out surveys. Even just hitting like, rather than scrolling by, has the power to raise profiles, build relationships and amplify awareness.

Across a week of action, each day will focus on a different area of the sector:

  • Monday: Launch day!
  • Tuesday: Art Galleries, Venues and Visitor Attractions
  • Wednesday: Independent Artists and Collectives
  • Thursday: Arts Companies and Freelancers
  • Friday: Final day!

To get the conversation going, a list of ten ways you can support has been drawn up but each artist, organisation and venue will share their own top three on social media so you can check out how best to get involved.

  1. Subscribe to mailing list
  2. Follow on social media
  3. Visit an exhibition, event, venue or activity
  4. Share content
  5. Watch a video or join a livestream or online event
  6. Become and friend, member or supporter
  7. Write to you MP
  8. Donate to a campaign
  9. Leave a TripAdvisor review
  10. Tell a friend to do something on this list and share #LoveBristolArts
If you can swing by Bristol arts and culture websites, socials that would be super. List below.
Thank you
