Ad Campaign Launch 

In February, we announced that American Advertising Federation - Colorado Springs selected the Cultural Office as a 2017 Public Service Project partner. We are excited to share that AAF-COS has designed and will be launching two campaigns, one for and one for Arts Month 2017. The Cultural Office is investing $20,000 in each campaign that will be matched in-kind by AAF-COS partners to yield over $190,000 in total promotional value!

Look and listen for's campaign, beginning soon on radio, television, print, billboards, bus shelters and more, and running through March 2018.  This is the biggest advertising campaign ever mounted for the region's free cultural calendar, so it is a huge win for the entire arts sector. Make sure to list your upcoming events on to take full advantage of this rising visibility!
