SUBMITTING EVENTS

In celebration of national arts and humanities month, Spokane Arts is coordinating the 4th annual “Create Spokane” Arts Month, featuring events and programs to be held throughout October 2017.

Artists, arts organizations, businesses, collectives, and creatives of all types are encouraged to submit their October events or activities through spokanearts.submittable.com. If you will be hosting an exhibition, performance, class, workshop, reception, lecture, tour, celebration, or other programming, let us know! Spokane Arts will promote these events and activities to the community, encouraging people to attend and support them. Ways that Spokane Arts will boost your program or event include an online Create Spokane calendar, social media, e-newsletter, and more, at no cost to you. Some events may also be featured in print, digital, and radio advertising to promote Create Spokane month.

We are looking for a variety of activities spanning all categories of art and culture, including but not limited to music, dance, theater, film, visual art, and literary art. If you have any questions, please contact artshelper@spokanearts.org.
