URGENT: November Last Friday ArtWalk Submission

Want to participate in the upcoming (November 29th) Last Friday ArtWalk?

Great! As Last Friday ArtWalk is still undergoing transitions however, we will proceed as we did last month as follows:

As opposed to submitting online using the LFA venue application form as you usually would, you will need to submit your art show info directly to the Eugene Weekly (insructions below) and/or self-promote via Facebook, your own email lists, postering, etc… Feel free to add a tag by typing”@Last Friday ArtWalk” on your facebook posts regarding your upcoming art shows in the meantime. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we undergo these changes. We fully intend to get the maps/posters going again just as soon as we are able. We know how valuable they are to creating continuity and active traffic between art show locations and local businesses.  We are looking forward to some positive changes after the holiday craze is over and are excited to make the necesary changes towards making LFA thrive in the coming year.

If you would like to play an active role in helping keep this awesome community event alive and well, please see the bottom of this post for details on what is needed at this point. Thank you, thank you to all of you (you know who you are) who have responded to our cry for help. We are saving all of your information for when it’s go time.

In the meantime lets all “keep calm and carry on” as they say.:)

Happy arting, art-walking, and holidaze to you all!

Promote Your Oct. LFA Show Further on Eugene-a-Go-Go

Howdy Fellow Artists/Art Venues,
If you are looking for a way to further promote your upcoming artshow this Friday (EVEN IF YOU HAVE ALREADY SUBMITTED INFO THE THE EUGENE WEEKLY), I can not more highly recommend ALSO creating a venue or artist profile to feature your upcoming events.
 
Eugene A Go-Go is a local non-profit online arts hub—a place to connect with other artists, opportunities, and events in arts and culture in Lane County—AND IT’S FREE!!!
Image
  • Step 1. Go to www.eugeneagogo.com
  • Step 2. Login to your account or create a new account by clicking “Register” at the top.
  • Step 3. Hover on the red button on the home page that says “Add your own content”
  • Step 4. Click “Create an Event” and fill in the details. You can login and edit your event at any point after you have created it.
  • Step 5: Be sure to add an image so it might appear on the homepage in the automatic slideshow. Images should be 720px wide and 320px high for maximum benefit.
  • Step 6: You can choose to have your event automatically pushed out to some local area calendars/radio stations simply by checking a box = SO AWESOME AND EASY!
I urge you all to utilize this amazing, free, user-friendly tool for self promotion, and NOT JUST Last Friday ARTWALK, but ANY future happenings you might be putting on.
 
This great resource allows you to see what’s happening in our community, and find things like calls to artists, volunteer opportunities, and fellow artists. These self-promo tools do wonders to connect our community but only if we know about em AND use them. So let’s support it—they are working to make it even easier to use and to make a mobile version of the site!
 
Thank and Enjoy!
-Claire Flint
