Publicity and marketing
Each exhibition is responsible for its own publicity and marketing. The SU Woordfees general publicity and marketing campaigns will support the exhibitors, but will not accept responsibility for the distribution of any marketing materials. The SU Woordfees cannot be held responsible for supplying any marketing material on behalf of exhibitors.

Introduction to the Visual Art Programme
The aim of the SU Woordfees 2018 Visual Arts Programme is to present festival goers with a coherent, interesting, accessible and authentic selection of solo and group exhibitions, all relating to a central theme, by established as well as new artists. Only exhibitions adhering to the above criteria will be considered for inclusion. As discussed below, the theme and subjects need to be considered carefully, because only applications compliant to the requirements will be considered. Approved exhibitions will be discussed, developed and structured in conjunction with curator Alex Hamilton, to ensure that the final exhibition links with the overall theme.
