Any business, organization, or accessible space that falls within the established boundaries of the five Cultural and Entertainment Districts plus Ingersoll Avenue, and that meets all other venue requirements below is eligible to participate.
As a Project Spaces venue, you are required to remain open to the public, free of charge, during your normal business hours for the duration of the event (September 14 – 29, 2012). Artstop will promote these as viewing hours to the general public.
Project Spaces venues are expected to remain open for artstop weekend hours (5 – 9 pm on Friday and 11 am – 5 pm on Saturday) during their district’s featured weekend, as follows:
Featured Artstop Weekend
|Historic East Village District and Court Avenue District||Friday, Sept. 14 – Saturday, Sept.15|
|Historic Valley Junction District and Roosevelt District||Friday, Sept. 21 – Saturday, Sept. 22|
|Ingersoll Avenue District and Western Gateway District||Friday, Sept. 28 – Saturday, Sept. 29|
All Project Spaces sites are required to pay a $150 Registration Fee. Venues will receive the benefit of valuable exposure online and in printed materials, beginning approximately six weeks in advance of and for the duration of the event, as well as inclusion in print and electronic advertisements.
Project Spaces venues are also required to complete an Artist and Site Hosting Agreement with the project’s artist(s) or arts group by May 31, 2012 to mutually agree upon, in advance, all costs and fees, installation and removal of artwork, and responsibility for lost, stolen, or damaged work.
All Project Spaces sites are strongly encouraged to register by March 15, 2012 to ensure that their site’s profile will be visible to applying artists and arts groups. Project Spaces sites that meet the early registration deadline will also have first priority to view and select from applying artists and groups.
The final registration deadline for all Project Spaces sites is May 31, 2012. The $150 Registration Fee is also due at this time for all sites.
