Spokane Arts works to amplify Spokane as the cultural hub and catalyst for the Inland Northwest through arts leadership, advocacy, networking and support. Spokane Arts is a partnership between the Spokane Arts Commission and the Spokane Arts Fund - the private, non-profit arts agency created in 2013. Find more information at www.spokanearts.org.

Create Spokane is our month-long celebration of arts and culture!
Use this form to submit your October events and activities.
The Arts Tour is October 
6th, 7th, & 8th.

Multiple events must be submitted separately.

Deadline for submitting information: Friday, August 18, 2017. 

In celebration of national arts and humanities month, Spokane Arts is coordinating the 4th annual Create Spokane Arts Month, to be held in October 2017.

Artists, arts organizations, arts businesses, and creatives of all types are encouraged to submit their October events or activities through submittable.com. Using the information submitted, Spokane Arts will promote those events and programs to the community, encouraging people to attend and support them.

Spokane Arts will promote the events and activities in one or many of the following ways: inclusion in an online Create Spokane calendar, where people can browse for events and build a personalized schedule; on the Spokane Arts social media (including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and more); in the Spokane Arts e-newsletter (over 3,000 subscribers); and more. Spokane Arts will place print and digital advertising to promote Create Spokane month, which will link to the calendar and may feature certain submitted events. (Spokane Arts cannot promise that every single submission will be featured in our print advertising campaign, but all relevant submissions will be promoted via the online resources listed above.) Spokane Arts will also seek earned media coverage to promote October’s arts and cultural offerings.    

Ends on December 31, 2017
