Gourmet bites, immersive installations and roaming performances brought heaving crowds to Brisbane Powerhouse in March 2023 for the inaugural Night Feast – a month-long celebration of food and art.
Aruga was engaged by Brisbane Powerhouse to launch the brand-new foodie venture through PR activity, with the aim to drive event awareness and website traffic, encourage attendance, and position Brisbane as a global destination for arts, food and culture.
Adopting traditional PR tactics, matched with Aruga’s creative eye, Night Feast caught the attention of audiences nation-wide, with 120 clips secured across broadcast, print and online media. Top media wins include a Channel 9 Weather Cross, features in Qantas Magazine and The Courier-Mail, and interviews on ABC Radio Mornings and Evenings.
