  • Attracting College Students to the Arts

    Contains 2 Component(s) Includes a Live Event on 10/21/2019 at 3:00 PM (EDT)

    This session will explore tactics to increase engagement with students through social media, strategic partnerships, and data collection. Discover which channels college students are actually using and the benefits of campus influencers to increase reach and engagement. Also, explore tips and tricks on how to engage and grow your Instagram following on a college campus in a way that also feeds the algorithm. Even more powerful than the student to student connection, is when an arts event or opportunity is directly connected to an academic course as a mandatory experience or for extra credit. Learn a variety of approaches to engage professors and how to partner with campus-wide initiatives to incentivize attendance. Finally, take an inside look at “The Opinion Party,” a re-imagined focus group for students that was successfully piloted last year on the Western Carolina University campus. “The Opinion Party” specifically sought out students that self-identified as not participating in the arts to have an open discussion on how we can reach them better both through our programming and marketing. Please note that this course will be most beneficial for arts organizations that are part of a university or those that are located near a college campus and are looking to increase engagement.
