A NEW AND EXCITING INDIE FESTIVAL BRINGING SMALL BUSINESSES AND THE YOUNG CREATIVE COMMUNITY TOGETHER
Following the success of LYT Market, Creative Leamington has secured funds from Warwickshire County Council to launch a month long indy-festival that will bring together tech and the creative sector to breathe new life into Leamington’s public space.
Vacant and occupied store fronts will become galleries and pop-up performance spaces for a month-long showcase, energising the retail experience and showcasing the best of local young talent.
The public will be able to connect and interact with the windows via QR codes and a new dedicated website . The website will feature an interactive map that will act as a series of trails driving the public to discover more about what is on offer, transforming the high street and engaging with local businesses and makers. The website will also provide shoppers with an opportunity to redeem voucher codes and offers in collaboration with the shops & spaces involved, creating a map of businesses that are providing both artistic engagement and opportunities to shop.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR 20+ SMALL BUSINESSES TO TAKE PART IN THE PROJECT!
ARE YOU A SMALL BUSINESS IN LEAMINGTON SPA TOWN CENTRE?
HAVE YOU GOT A STOREFRONT OR WINDOW?
DO YOU WANT TO BE PART OF A NEW AND EXCITING COMMUNITY EVENT?
ARE YOU HAPPY TO BIG UP AND SUPPORT OTHER BUSINESS AND YOUNG ARTISTS?
YOU WILL BE FEATURED IN OUR INTERACTIVE MAP WHERE THE PUBLIC WILL BE ABLE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS AND THE ARTIST YOU ARE SUPPORTING. IF YOU ARE OFFERING A DISCOUNT OR RUNNING A PROMOTION , CUSTOMERS WILL BE ABLE TO FIND YOU BY FILTERING THEIR SEARCH BY OFFERS.
YOU AND THE ARTIST YOU ARE SUPPORTING WILL HAVE YOUR OWN DEDICATED WEBPAGE. THIS WILL LOOK A BIT LIKE THIS!
WE WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH CLEAR BRANDING TO SHOWCASE THE ARTIST'S WORK AND YOU WILL BE PART OF OUR SOCIAL MEDIA AND MARKETING CAMPAIGN.
THE VINYL WILL BE 80 X 80 cm AND CAN BE FITTED IN LESS THAN 10 MINUTES
OK, WHAT'S THE CATCH?
We have secured funds form Warwickshire County Council to make this programme FREE for businesses. So there is NO EXPENSE on your side.
You only need to have a shop window and be happy to host 1 product from a local young creative. This will not take the whole of your shopfront (don’t worry!) and we will try an pair you up with an artist that is in line with your brand and products.
You must be happy to have our branding vinyl applied to your window (a local branding agency will provide and fit this for you so that is professionally installed. Measurements are 80x80cm)
So that we can publicise your involvement better we will ask you to provide your logo and a short quote about your business, what you sell and why. This will help audiences get to know you better.
You CAN provide a discount or promotion to be redeem on the website (e.g. 10% off your next purchase). This is not compulsory but we have found that the more businesses get involved into this sort of programmes the more they get back. We will work hard to bringing people to your door so you might want to go the extra mile and invite them in with cheeky offer ;-)
WHAT'S NEXT? TELL US YOU ARE IN!
THE DEADLINE TO GET INVOLVED IS SUNDAY 28TH MARCH AT MIDNIGHT.
