On 29th November 2018 music students from Shetland College UHI performed at a free event in the Mareel Auditorium.
In the run up to the event, with help from the Shetland Arts marketing team, the students ran an online social media marketing campaign that contextualized outcomes from the NC Creative Industries “Working For Yourself” unit. They also created posters and flyers and took part in a Radio Shetland Interview . The interview included excerpts from recordings the students had created as part of their coursework.
The week before the main event, students hosted a small pop-up concert in the Shetland College canteen. This served as an opportunity for students to dress-rehearse material for the main event in the Mareel Auditorium and raise awareness amongst their fellow students.
The main event in the Mareel Auditorium was well attended with an audience of just over 100. In addition, NC Film students broadcast the live event on Facebook to over 2400 viewers.
