Marketing and Public Relations Work Group

Work Group Co-Chairs: Julie Granger, Executive Vice-President, Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce (MMAC) and Carole Nicksin, Publisher, Milwaukee Magazine

Imagine MKE staff leader: Lindsay Sheridan, Director of Marketing and PR

This work group is focused on increasing public awareness, political will, and support for Milwaukee’s diverse arts and culture sector, and changing the narrative of our city from a sleepy Midwestern post-industrial town with beer and brats to America's new, up and coming arts and culture mecca.

We will measure the effectiveness of this work by: Improved public perception of the value of arts and culture in Milwaukee increases via public surveys; increased audiences and markets for local artists and arts groups; and increase in diverse public participation in arts and culture.

Our next meeting is Tuesday, June 30, 1:00 - 2:15 pm via Zoom. The meeting will focus on: "How can we build new systems and campaigns that keep the sale and consumption of local arts front of mind during the pandemic?"
