Promoting Your AZ Speaks Program

Organizations must add the Arizona Humanities logo or the language “This program is made possible by Arizona Humanities” to all publicity materials (flyers, press release, website, postcards, etc.)

The more you can share your program with different audiences, the more that people understand the role and the importance of the humanities.

Ideas to help market the program in your community:

  • Begin 4-6 weeks prior to the date of the program
  • Create a flyer/poster/postcard for your venue
  • Include the program announcement on your website
  • Add your program to community calendar listings
  • Send out an email to your e-mail list
  • Write and submit a press release to local media announcing the program
  • Post about the program on social media
  • Share the program announcement with local schools, city council, libraries, tourism board/visitors center, chamber of commerce, professional society newsletters
  • Invite your elected congressional officials and/or their staff
