Posting to Culture Crawl ChannelsThe Culture Crawl does not allow posting from third parties on to its Facebook Page. However, we do allow such posts to be shared on the official Facebook Event Page for each year. If you wish to show or share works with potential visitors, we encourage you to post there. PLEASE NOTE: Due to the number of participants, we do request that you only share one post in lead-up to the event. Additionally, you can support the Eastside Culture Crawl as a whole by inviting your personal contacts to RSVP for the Facebook event.
Creating your own event on FacebookWe encourage artists to make full use of the official Facebook Events that are created by the Culture Crawl. If you wish to create a Facebook Event for your studio, here are a few things to remember.
#CrawlCountdownIn lead-up to the Crawl, we know that many of you will be doing preparations around your studios. Share a photo of your studio in mid-preparation on Instagram and include the hashtag #CrawlCountdown. We will select a few studio photos to re-post to our network and link to your profile.
A note about your friends & familyMake sure they do not hog your time gossiping and catching up and respect that you are at work. But also note that they will be the first people exposed to your work and often the first to buy it. If a customer walks into your space and they feel like they are interrupting a private conversation, they will probably walk right out.
