Creative Genie Marketing & Social Media

Hope you like the new newsletter format! 

As well as taking care of our Social Media, I will be putting together the Newsletter moving forward. We decided to use Mailchimp, because it has lots of benefits, such as being able to track traffic to the main website and social media accounts. The Newsletter still has the features that members need, such as the Opportunities page, and latest Exhibitions and Events.


January Members Meeting

What a buzz! We had almost 40 members join in with our 10am-2pm workshop-style meeting at Rothamsted Conference Centre on January 9th, with almost as many letting us know they couldn’t make it.

Open Studios 2017

Are you ready to join in? It’s on its way
HVA members can be part of our flagship Herts Open Studios event, held over 3 weeks in September.

Changes are afoot!  Hillary is looking at how we can improve Open Studios going forward and more details for OS2017 will be available very soon.  Watch this space! 

This year Herts Open Studios runs from Saturday 9th September to Sunday 1st October 2017. With all the feedback from both recent reviews and our January Members Meeting there will be some exciting developments for OS17 and beyond to look forward to. This includes more emphasis on on-line information and marketing, exciting changes to the hard copy brochure/trail leaflets as well as more support for members and participants. We’ve also listened to feedback about groups and taking part.

The full Open Studios campaign and signup will start begin from February. In the meantime, while we are finalising arrangements, why not renew your HVAF membership and take advantage of our early-bird renewal discount. New and existing embers will also need to be signed up before registering to be part of April exhibition at the New Maynard Gallery.
