‘Daily Life in the Caribbean’ a short promo about the Caribbean Painters Project, went live over the weekend on a new channel on YouTube. The promo shows a selection of paintings by various artists depicting daily life in the Caribbean. Ten other promos will follow this week.
The promos are part of a social media campaign to increase awareness and engagement for Caribbean Painters, a project which aims to challenge the world to discover, discuss and ultimately buy artwork from Caribbean Painters.
For the awareness campaign the ‘use #hashtag #CaribbeanPainters’ line was introduced on twitter. It urges people to use the hashtag throughout the day to admire unique masterpieces from the Caribbean. Tweets concentrate on creating a habit to use the hashtag, for example to use it as motivation to start your working day; to use it as inspiration during your lunch break; or to use it to entertain yourself during the weekend.
The Caribbean Painters project was launched just over a month ago and has gained 1,400 followers on Facebook and another 1,700 on Twitter so far. Pinterest, Instagram and YouTube are the newest additions to the project.
