Monday, June 30, 2014, 3 - 4:30 p.m.
Stages Repertory Theatre, 3201 Allen Parkway #101


All area arts administrators and gallerists (especially marketing and media relations specialists) were encouraged to join and hear about the latest initiative of the “Houston is Inspired” campaign, focusing on the launch of the 2014 fall arts season. Called “45 Days: Explore the Arts in Houston,” this initiative is designed to build greater regional awareness of Houston’s arts scene and cross-pollinate audiences locally by encouraging exploration of Houston’s many cultural offerings.

The plan included co-op ad opportunities highlighting discounted tickets and free events over a 45-day period (September 4 - October 18, 2014) - all with a strong social media and publicity component.

Special thanks to Saint Arnold Brewing Company
