Things to remember about your dashboard.


On this page, you can manage your bookmarks and saved events as well as your account information. On the left of this page click events and then My list or Account Info.

Artists, Organizations

You can manage your individual artist profile, organization or business profile, post and edit events, bookmark your favorite listings, and more. To return to your dashboard at any time, click "My Account" in the upper right corner.


Many resources fall under the classified section. Calls for Art, Workshops, Grant Information, Job Postings and more. Please make sure and use the proper category!

If this is your first time submitting an event, you will need to create an organization profile and register your venue (where applicable), or if you are an artist, you will need to create an artist profile. You can do all of that using the links in the toolbar to the left.


Please be sure to read the Submission Guidelines below before submitting.

IMPORTANT! Our event form has changed. The "Dates & Times" section, normally found on Step 2 of the form, has been moved to Step 1.
