WORLD COLLAGE DAY
EVENT PLANNING GUIDE
Step One: Find a Space
If you don't have your own space, reach out to a partner who does. These can be galleries, libraries, cafes, bars, museums, or community centers. Work with the space to determine a time on May 9th to hold the event.
Step Two: Define an Activity
Ideas include collage making meet-ups, docent-led tours of collage in a museum or gallery, activities for kids, slideshows or talks that appreciate collage's role in contemporary art & art history, exhibitions of collage, and more. See 2018 events to get ideas.
Step Three: Submit Your Event to Kolaj Magazine
This is a helpful tool that gathers all the information we need to promote your event on our end. The form asks you for Event Title, Start & End Time, Organization name, the Name of the Venue name and address, contact information for the venue, and minimum of 3-7 sentences about what will happen there.
We also ask that you submit an image of artwork that we can use to promote the event. Do not send posters or postcards, only artwork.
We will announce your event on the WORLD COLLAGE DAY WEBSITE and through our social media. When we receive your event, we will email with some helpful tips and other resources.
Step Four: Promote your event locally
Submit a calendar listing to local newspaper, radio, and television outlets. Announce the event online and through social media and ask other people to share it. Consider drafting a press release and sending it to the media with a request that they report on the event.
Step Five: Enjoy World Collage Day, May 9, 2020
Take lots of pictures and post them to social media using the hashtag #worldcollageday.
