What to post

Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Let people know why you’re proud to be part of Refugee Festival Scotland and where they can find more information
  • Share key details about your event – what is happening on the day? When and where will it take place? How can people take part?
  • Create a buzz by posting photos, short video clips and stories about your event and the people involved
  • What are you looking forward to? Is it the food, the music, the dancing? Are you excited about coming together as a community?
  • What does this year’s festival theme, rise, mean to you?
  • Remind everyone about your event a few days before it takes place
  • Post some live updates during your event
  • After your event, let everyone know how it went and thank people for coming along
