PR, marketing, profile and partnerships for arts, culture and heritage
What I do
I get stories in the news, publicise events, raise the profile of organisations, create a buzz online and make videos and other online content. I run training for arts and cultural organisations and individual artists. I also develop audiences, organise events, coordinate and produce engaging arts programmes across South West England and nationally.
Who I work with
Since setting up Gillian Taylor PR, I have worked with a range of cultural clients including the Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery, Somerset Art Works, the All Party Parliamentary Group on Arts Health & Wellbeing, CEDA (Community Equality Disability Action), Devon Artist Network, Dreadnought South West, and a number of individual artists.
What do you need?
What can I help you with? If you’re trying to get your story in the news, need some help with social media, would like to improve your communications strategy or you just know you need to raise your profile somehow, get in touch. If you’re not sure what it is you need, or you’d just like to chat about what I can offer, email me, or call on 07761 546075.
I run training in smartphone video-making, media interviews, writing press releases and other topics. Learn how to get your story in the news, communicate your messages effectively in interviews or make your own simple video with your phone. Workshops from basic level to advanced, in person or online.
Video & content
I tell stories about arts, culture and heritage by creating short videos, writing engaging copy, and creating other content for use online, in press releases and in marketing materials. I also work with clients, with talented designers and with great photographers to showcase the work of cultural organisations.
I’m a creative communications professional with extensive experience in the cultural sector. Before I set up Gillian Taylor PR, I was the communications lead for Arts Council England in the South West for 15 years. I’m also a paper artist and a violinist, as you can see from the photo.
