This briefing explains how community media can be a useful tool to promote the activities undertaken by voluntary arts groups.

For example, some of the things that community media can do for your voluntary arts groups include:- 

• Encourage new participants, members and volunteers to join in
• Help increase attendances at arts and crafts events
• Introduce new and established art and craft work to community media audiences
• Build long-lasting relationships between local communities and arts/crafts groups
• Enable existing participants and volunteers in the community media sector to get involved in creative activity
• Strengthen the programming schedules by providing a cultural element to local coverage
