Artsreach is a charity and we tour professional theatre music and dance productions to village halls across rural Dorset.
The objective is to enable people living in isolated communities in the rural areas to access high quality arts events and to engage with these, either as an audience member or as a participant through workshop involvement.
Artsreach is funded by the Arts Council which enables us to subsidise the cost of tickets to keep them affordable as well as programming events in small venues where there is a limited capacity (and therefore a small box office return).
The Arts Council are encouraging organisations to become less reliant on public funding and in the light of the proposed unitary authorities in Dorset we are facing a possible reduction in our subsidy.
We have commissioned a fundraising strategy and are now looking to implement this strategy to increase our fundraising potential.
We have identified that brand awareness is a key component of increasing our audiences and this in turn will increase our box office return. We are also looking at attracting supporters to join our Friends scheme.
To print jute shopping bags which are 45cm wide x 35 high to distribute to our supporters – it is hoped that with these widely used in shops across the county it will improve our brand awareness.
We are looking for
- 2 colour design on both sides of the jute bag. We can purchase jute bags with a contrasting gusset and handle or this colour could be the same as one of the colours used in the design
The inclusion of our current logo (Artsreach)
- A design that will be eye catching, suggests quality and relates to the delivery of our work (live theatre, music and dance) in a rural setting. Most of the venues we use are village halls. We would welcome the design to be non-gender specific so as everyone feels comfortable using the jute bag for weekly shopping.
- Designs to be submitted that are high resolution and AI, EPS or PDF files.
Timescale: Register your interest to Artsreach immediately and to be completed by Friday 15th June 2018
There will be a selection panel to chose the design that most accurately meets the brief and is eye catching, the winner will be awarded £250.
Please could you register your interest with Artsreach by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we can then send you a high definition logo.
