Arc news: October 2011
Can you help us spread the word?
This autumn, Arc is looking for friends, champions and ambassadors to talk about our work and help us to develop our profile in the community, at school, and in the workplace.
As a valued supporter, there are many ways you can help us and the feedback we receive from you as customers, funders and users is absolutely invaluable to us in terms of recommendation to others.
Google Maps Review
Did you know you that it's easy to have your say and review organisations that are listed online at Google Maps? If you have a Google Mail account, simply login to go to review us at Arc Theatre's place. Whatever your experience of our work, or of Arc as an organisation - maybe you've seen our plays, commissioned programmes, hired our studios or participated as an actor or community volunteer - we would be absolutely delighted to hear your views! Not only will your review help to inform other users, but personal recommendation goes a long way to help secure funding that is essential to us in order to continue delivering our work.

Review us on the LONSAS website
The London Schools Arts Service is a fantastic resource used across the arts and cultural learning sectors - the place educators go to when looking for help, inspiration and suitable arts partners, and an essential portal for any artist, arts or cultural organisation wishing to work with London schools. Arc has been lucky enough to work with some extremely inspirational partners on a variety of exciting projects with schools as a direct result of our profile on LONSAS, which we are currently in the process of updating. One recent, highly-successful school-arts collaboration is the Greenford Heroes project, funded by A New Direction.
If you are a teacher or education worker who has seen our work in schools, or perhaps funded a programme or piece of Forum Theatre, please do visit LONSAS and leave us your review. In order for us to receive further referrals leading to new funding, it really is vital for us to have the recommendation of past users on our profile.
Talk about us and write to us!
Please tell your family, friends and colleagues about us! You may know someone who would love to join our Youth Theatre, or who is looking to hire a room for rehearsals! Word of mouth is a fantastic way to get people talking about what's available in your community!
Finally, if you would prefer simply to send us your feedback directly, which you are happy for us to use in publicity, on our website, or to quote to potential customers, please do email your thoughts to email@example.com and we will be absolutely delighted to hear from you!
A very big thank you from all at Arc!
