Public relations is one of the most important aspects in a business’ marketing plan. However, it is often overlooked by many. Our client, FirstWorks, enlisted our help in executing a PR plan for their six-part concert series this summer to maximize their reach and attendance. Aside from utilizing the power of PR, we were also tasked with gaining earned media to heighten awareness of these events.

The six part concert series was hosted in the Roger Williams Park in Providence, RI from June to late September. It featured local artists, larger scale performances, educational workshops, artists interviews and more. FirstWorks wanted to push these events as a way to bring the community together and experience the arts live. It was important to spread the word and increase attendance, as their major two-day festival, PVDFest, was cancelled for the second year in a row.

The forms of earned media we secured for FirstWorks ranged from digital media to traditional media.
