Description

In view of the European Elections 2014, the European Parliament turned to us to create more awareness on them as a people's institution and to bring them closer to the citizens. With this movie we wanted to show Europeans that the EP is aware of all the issues surrounding Europeans in this time of crises. That in harsh times people need to speak up and that every opinion gets a fair chance. That the EP doesn't want to wave away the problems and just talk standard elections talk but that they DO care.

Execution

We started teasing through announcements on the European Parliament’s channels and on the artist’s social networks, using pictures from his trip to Paris.

Media were invited to an exclusive preview of the installations and to meet the artist. Traditional and online media were informed (press release and outreach) to generate coverage ahead of the conference. Slinkachu shared pictures on his own channels...

Postcards and posters using photos of the installations and the headline “Why is is so hard to find a job?” with a link to the live-streaming were distributed in universities and other locations. We reached out to 98 bloggers. We contacted 578 journalists, and did a personal follow-up with 119 of them. We used Facebook to post attractive visual content for the promotion and to drive conversations. We used Twitter to spread the word and the hashtag and to relay real time information before and during the conference....
