2021 Editorial Calendar
Want to be featured in Artscape’s eNews, social channels, and/or on our website? That’s a network of over 90k people in the arts community including stakeholders, non-profit organizations, artists, creative entrepreneurs, and creators.
We’ve featured Artscape tenants and members but now we’re also extending this open call for those of you in our Artscape audience that ever thought to yourself, “How do I get on Artscape’s radar??”. Here’s how! We’re always looking for artists who have a story to tell via video of their work year-round (short clips under 1 min preferred—think 30 second IG Reels), so don’t be shy and promote yourself by submitting via this link.
Please note: While we would love to feature every submission, we are tackling multiple requests competing for our attention, therefore only those selected will be contacted.
If you’d like to be featured—here is our focus for the next 12 months of 2021!
