Laura Johnson interviewed Ashley McDaniel and Meg Wethington to talk about the Community Artist Will (CAW) PR for Artists Program.
Meg said, “PR for Artists is a daily arts and information source and promoting tool. It provides resources, call for artists, contests, free press releases, and joint promotions for both local artists and small merchants that promote the arts”.
Ashley expanded on CAW’s goals saying, “CAW continues to expand its reach beyond New Bern and Craven County. Visitors from other areas of North Carolina have already begun to recognize CAW’s unique venues and offerings. Contributions from our community will enable us to do more one-on-one PR training for local artisans, more peer-to-peer workshops, and more outreach to assist the smaller merchants who support the arts in Eastern North Carolina”. This could result in, “more jobs for artists, more foot traffic for merchants, and a better economy and livelihood for all.”
