Next Season: April 26 - May 5, 2019

Create an Event

Applications for Spring 2018 (April 27 – May 6) are now available! Apply using THIS LINK.

It’s simple! Begin your online application here. ArtWeek events should be unique experiences that are hands-on, interactive or offer behind-the-scenes access to arts, culture, and the creative economy. This year, the award-winning festival is expanding statewide so we’re looking for event hosts from all corners of the Commonwealth! We define the arts broadly to include culinary, design, architecture, spoken word, film, fashion, and other artistic forms of expression in addition to dance, theatre, music and visual art – so be creative! Check out our easy FAQ for more information or preview the application by clicking here (this PDF is for previewing purposes only – please use the link for the live online application to apply).

If you have an idea for an ArtWeek event, please submit an application. ArtWeek staff will then review your proposal and be in touch. To stay up to date on the latest news with ArtWeek, subscribe to our mailing list here.

There’s more than one way to create an ArtWeek event!

Create a unique event around your own art. Invite an artist to your place of business. Ask an individual, group, or business to brainstorm an original idea with you. You can even add an unexpected twist to an existing event such as a behind-the-scenes tour or even a chance for participants to get their own hands dirty. There are many ways you can be involved in the creation of an ArtWeek event. ArtWeek event creators are individual artists, theatre companies, restaurateurs, local business owners, galleries, and many other types of people with an idea they’d like to share with others.

Have an idea but no one to share it with?

ArtWeek staff are available to help you enhance your creative ideas. Get in touch with us at
