Publicising Your Event

Publicising your Event with Creative Barossa

If you would like your event featured in Creative Barossa's Facebook Events List, Monthly Upcoming Event emails, Bi-Annual Newsletter emails and mail-outs sent to Barossa Arts Council members, these are some suggestions on how you can help us help you.

Please note that our organisation is staffed by unpaid volunteers and that we may not always be able to fulfil requests with short lead times.  Please allow as much lead time as possible.  Many of the activities listed below occur monthly, so ideally please allow one month’s lead time.

We do not place any limits on where your event is held, ideally your event should be arts and crafts in character and be held in South Australia.  If we believe your event is not a match for our organisation we may with no further consultation with you, ignore your request.  If we believe your event is border line, we may contact you to request additional information about your event.

2. Web Site Links – Documents
If you have forms that you would like or need event attendees to complete, we cannot attach them in Facebook unless they already exist on a website.  We specifically need an URL address in order to link them in Facebook.  If you document does already exist on a website   Open your document on your internet browser and copy the URL address from the address bar at the top of your screen and paste it into your email to us, your documents URL address should look something like this:  e.g.: http://www.barossaevent.com.au/eventforms/applicationform.pdf.
