How can we help you?

Answers to frequently asked questions.

The Faculty of Arts Communications and Marketing team is able to provide tools and guidance for marketing events that have a focus on broad participation by audiences across the faculty, university and external to the university. The team does not manage event coordination for the faculty.

  1. Want your event on your department's event listings, Faculty listings, Arts Engage or UToday?

    • Contact your unit’s website administrator and ask them to post the event to LiveWhale and share it with the Faculty of Arts, Arts Engage, and UCalgary News and Events calendar groups.
    • This will allow your event listing to feed onto the Faculty of Arts events listing page, and will be included in our b-iweekly Arts Engage newsletter and the UToday event listings.
    • Your unit's administrative assistant is the web admin for your unit. You can find them on the contact page of your website.
    • If your event has an equity, diversity, and inclusion focus, be sure to have the administrator share it to Arts Equity, Diversity and Inclusion as well.
  2. Want to promote your event on social media?

    Our form helps you give us all the pertinent information we need to promote your event.

  3. When should I use an event intake form?

    Submit an event intake form to the Arts Communications and Marketing team when your event includes/requires:

    • Help with social media planning
    • Media relations (pitching a news release to external news media)
    • A story in internal communications channels such as Arts Engage or UToday
    • Government stakeholders or other VIPs
    • Marketing collateral over and above Marketo invitations (ie: print or digital marketing collateral)
