I’m doing some PR work for Queens Park Railway Club – an artist-run space located in the station building at Queens Park here in Glasgow.
It’s exciting to be working with artists again, my degree was jointly in History of Art, and I often dealt with press releases from galleries when I worked as Listings Editor for The Press Association.
I’ve got to know the directors of the gallery and appreciate what they’re doing. I took their art-world focused copy and adapted it for a media audience, to draw attention to a unique event. A different perspective and a good contacts book can help get the word out.
Here’s the project that I’m promoting for them – Public Address
Artist Rob Kennedy has devised a project where performers will broadcast from the gallery to commuters on the platform each morning. You’ll need to get up early to catch it!
