The Arts Agenda: Capture The Media’s Attention


On Thursday, April 16, Laura Murray Public Relations was the proud host of the second instalment of our workshop series, The Arts Agenda. This session focused on a topic that’s on every arts marketer’s mind – how do you craft the perfect media pitch? We were privileged to have an interactive panel discussion with prominent Vancouver journalists – Janet Smith, Arts & Style Editor at The Georgia Straight, Steven Schelling, Editor at, and Monique Polloni, Formerly of CBC Radio-Canada – who shared invaluable tips and tricks for pitching.

The session began with a discussion moderated by LMPR Principal Laura Murray, which covered PR best practices from first impressions to follow ups. The answers provided unparalleled information to consider when pitching and building key relationships with the media. Once this portion of the workshop wrapped up, the floor was opened up to attendees wherein they were invited to ask the esteemed panellists their own questions.
