Esmeralda Montenegro Owen
Director of Communications, Marketing, and Public Relations,
Hartnell College




Marketing to the different audiences can be a challenging task for any arts’ organization.
The use of typical methods is no longer sufficient to draw in the numbers. But what if we
mastered the ‘bundle’ method and utilized the press, advertising, social media presence,
website, word of mouth, networking, and others to reach the most people and attract engagement?


Esmeralda Montenegro Owen is director of communications, marketing, and public relations at Hartnell College. She holds BAs in Broadcast Journalism and Spanish from USC and an MPA from Notre Dame de Namur University. Her passion is to help others through volunteerism, mentorship, philanthropy, and the written word.

About the F.A.N. Meetings

We meet the fourth Wednesday of each month – in the morning with treats – at various venues.

Thanks to support from the Community Foundation and the Packard Foundation, the Arts Council presents monthly meetings that focus on trends, techniques and tips to drive attendance to arts presentations. Our speakers tailor their remarks to the special needs and constraints of local arts organizations – but they are applicable to many and all are welcome.
