The Aruga team delivered unprecedented success in their role as publicist for Brisbane Powerhouse’s Wonderland Festival 2017, achieving an estimate 4.5 million online coverage views, show-specific coverage for more than 20 unique productions, and assisting to achieve an overall festival attendance increase of almost 10%. Aruga was also vital in expertly crisis-managing the cancellation of one of the productions, skilfully navigating brand protection and stakeholder interests whilst ensuring artist duty-of-care needs were met at all times. We recommend the agency wholeheartedly and can’t wait to work on the next big project with them.
