Press Outreach Toolkit
Hyattsville CDC + Gateway CDC with the support of the Maryland State Arts Council, have developed a Press Outreach Toolkit. The tool offers Gateway Arts District stakeholders the ability to access an online, nationwide press/media contact database called Cision.
With this tool in hand, Gateway artists and arts organizations are able to both streamline how they promote their press releases as well as adjust their research and strategy to shape their business models towards local, regional and national outreach.
