We strongly recommend that you keep in touch with your local area coordinator and follow the advice on opening your studio in Rules, Guidelines, hints and tips (available on the members downloads page). SEOS covers a very wide area and there is a limit to what the management team can cover, so local initiative makes a big difference to the success of your opening. When you apply for local publicity please let our publicity officer know (details can be found on the Contact page). SEOS will be sending out general press releases (also found on general downloads page) promoting the event as a whole but would appreciate the additional mailing of press releases by artists. The publicity officer also has a media contacts database and can offer you support and contacts with your press releases.
We are not a promotional company. We have a limited budget for ‘general’ advertising and cannot be responsible for the promotion of each individual entrant. We need the support and promotion of every participant if we are to become known and recognised by the public as one of the finest ways to experience art and craft in the South East.
