Shakespeare in the Park
Public Relations Support
Pollen worked alongside the new artistic director, board of directors and support team to shine a spotlight on a beloved but struggling grass roots arts organization. We helped reposition this semi-amateur, seasonal touring company as a professional, year-round theatre company with a rejuvenated mission and vision, brand identity, website, social media accounts, public relations tools, and promotional, sales and fundraising materials. Pollen also mentored staff to take on more responsibility for PR, marketing, and day-to-day social media management activities.
“Christine Guy (Pollen Communication) exudes a confidence and a can-do spirit that will raise the profile of any company she works with. I ran a not-for-profit theatre company in Montreal and with Christine’s help, we generated a new brand, marketing materials, and strategies that inspired everyone associated with it. Her work and contributions to the company impacted our relationships with everyone from audience to donors to sponsors to governments stakeholders to artists. This theatre company is now an established part of the cultural fabric of Montreal. Christine’s work, partnership and communications approach ensured the future of a much-cherished arts organization.”
