Why join ART Nelson/Tasman?
ART Nelson/Tasman is a platform comprising of a website and social media pages actively promoting artists of the Nelson Tasman region.
We know that artists are always looking for opportunities to showcase your work to a broader audience. This platform can provide you with exposure and promotion, helping you reach a wider demographic.

What do I get?
Your very own artist page will include a 300 word biography, up to 5 photos and you can add links to your own website and social media pages. This will provide you with an opportunity to drive traffic to your own platforms and engage with a wider online community.
You will also get shout out on social media - our Instagram following is growing daily.

How will you promote this platform?
This platform will be featured in well-known local media channels, ensuring your work will be seen by a broader local audience. This exposure can lead to increased recognition and support from our local community. Furthermore we will be reaching out nationally to promote the creative talent in our region. We are creating marketing material to distribute to hospitality, local businesses, stickers with QR codes, and everything else we can do to increase our visibility. Already our friends at the NRDA have given it a thumbs up!

What about search engines?

This means that when people search for local artists or artwork online, your artist profile and work will have a higher chance of appearing in search results, further boosting your online presence.
