PA Northern-Ireland based family insurance brokerage, Property Insurance Centre, is supporting the arts and local area in a surprising way. The company has teamed up with the Irish author and podcast creator, Jackie De Burca, to produce the first season of the Creative Places & Faces podcast.
The podcast features authors, artists and all types of creators with the specific angle of how certain places affect their creative output. The first season focuses on creatives from Northern Ireland with an exciting line-up of names including the winner of the EU Prize for Literature, Jan Carson, Guardian journalist and author, Henry McDonald, and BBC featured stained glass artists Ann Smyth.
The highly respected and much-loved glass artists, Andrea Spencer, even feels that her episode of the podcast may have contributed to the sale of a very special piece she made for the Craft NI Unlocked Show.
Along with the other guests, Andrea was very happy with the support made possible by the podcast’s sponsor, Property Insurance Centre, she tweeted, “So nice to hear people are enjoying the spisode. It’s a great podcast idea and is a great opportunity to shine a light on Northern Ireland.”
The sponsorship of this first season by Property Insurance Centre helps to promote the books and works of the various creatives featured, on the podcast itself and to a social media audience of 40,000 fans.
However, it does even more than this. The end each interview hones in on that person’s favourite places to go locally. The transcript of each interview is then featured on De Burca’s travel community site, Travel Inspires, which frequently ranks on the first page of Google and other search engines.
This means that places in Northern Ireland that are often less well known are being promoted for when it is considered safe to travel again. Here is an example from the interview with Andrea Spencer.
