Public relations is an integral part of communicating the work of architects. This two part interactive workshop will focus on helping architecture practices get a better understanding of public relations, from finding their voice in the crowd to understanding their audience and building a media profile.
In the first session, participants will learn how to promote their practice and present their story to the media, how to build relationships with journalists and how to develop a PR culture in their practice to maximise their effectiveness.
In the second session, the group will look at relevant PR case studies and strategies, looking beyond media relations to networking, events, managing online presence and establishing a brand.
About the lecturers:
Leading the workshop will be Tom Elliott and Andrea Klettner from ING Media, a leading PR and communications agency based in Shoreditch that works across design, architecture, property and regeneration.

Architecture and Citizenship
What is the relationship between citizenship and architecture? How does the built environment impact our perception of being part of a community in the current context of greater urban migration and global citizenship? MoA's upcoming year long programming on Architecture and Citizenship will explore how elements that characterise urban life - density, diversity, publicity, cultural vitality and political power - shape our sense of citizenship through the very physical manifestation of the built environment.
Access to housing, healthcare, education, culture, as well as a better participation in political life through the public sphere, all constitute key elements in how individuals shape their personal and collective identities. However, current political, social and cultural climate is questioning the very concept of citizenship in the global world. With the migrant crisis, Brexit, and growing nationalist tendencies across Europe, it seems valuable to examine how key debates in the built environment reflect broader discussions on citizenship in a global world.
