Harrow Open Studios is an independent group which is supported by advertising and sponsorship. We offer organisations the opportunity to promote their business while supporting their local artist community at the same time. Over the years Harrow Open Studios has enjoyed a significant growth with new visitors year on year and our online presence is growing.
An important part of promoting the event is our collectable brochure. We produce 15,000 copies which are distributed free through libraries, local shops, restaurants and clubs. They are also available throughout the year at various artist and community events and to download from our website. We have an estimated readership of 90,000. We also have a well-visited web site on which we feature our advertisers on every page and include our sponsors on a directory page, complete with active web links.
As well as the main annual event, the brochure and website are actively used for the full year during which they are current. The artists are involved in various events throughout the year which are promoted on our website. We use Facebook and Twitter to encourage people to visit our site where your advertisement or sponsorship will be visible. The brochure itself is available at most events, thus giving you coverage throughout the year.
For example, throughout April and May Harrow Open Studio Artists will have a group exhibition in the Gallery and Corridors of Harrow Arts Centre. The brochure will be available during this period.
There are two main ways you can join the many local firms already supporting our studios by advertising or sponsoring us for an Open Studios year.

A copy of your logo is also required for inclusion on the website. Your logo will appear alongside all our advertisers on every web page.
