Each week we hand over the Parlour Instagram account to a different host. This is an opportunity to present a complex picture of architecture and the people involved in it.

Parlour instagram hosting protocols

Eligibility

Parlour guest hosting is available to everyone – individuals, practices, informal groups and organisations.

Please note: guest hosting the Parlour instagram account does not automatically confer endorsement of the host or their actions.

Topic

Choose images that are relevant and a”ppropriate to Parlour. Images could pertain to a particular topic, or could simply document your life in architecture.

Do be honest and genuine. Don’t treat this as a PR opportunity – the Parlour community is highly attuned to ‘gender washing,’ and will see straight through it. This is particularly important for practices and organisations.

Frequency

Try to keep up a regular presence without flooding people.

  • 2 to 3 image per day is good as a guide
  • Try to post an image a day at a minimum
  • Try not to post more than 5 or 6 per day, unless you are live posting an event or similar
Timing

We have followers all over the world, so there is no need to worry about timezones. Just post whenever it suits you. Some people have a regular schedule, others fit it in to the ebb and flow of their day. Either approach is fine.

Copyright and credit

Please only post images that you took yourself or that you have permission to use. If you do post an image by someone else, with permission, please credit the photographer.

If you are posting about projects or initiatives, please give credit where it is due. It is better to err on the side of generosity.

Captions

In the caption please include #ParlourInstaGuest.

Profile and URL

We name the guest host for the week in the account profile. Please don’t change the associated URL, which should remain connected to the Parlour website.

Comments

Please don’t comment on other’s posts when logged in as Parlour. Comments are best made from your own account.

Do not sent direct messages to others from the Parlour instagram account.

Propriety

Do be polemical and forthright, but please be respectful. The Parlour etiquette applies here too. In particular, please avoid negative personal comment about individuals.

All hosts must follow Instagram Community Guidelines. This includes ensuring that you do not post images or captions that may be reasonably perceived as inappropriate, offensive or disrespectful.

We reserve the right to delete images that we consider inappropriate, although we expect to never have to do this!

Of you experience any difficulties while you are guest hosting Parlour instagram, please contact us immediately at .

If you have concerns about the relevance or appropriateness of material posted by Parlour Instagram guest hosts, please contact us on .
