What’s On

Submit your events for Fall for Arts 2018

Thank you for your enthusiasm,
you beautiful bunch of creative people!

We’re gearing up for the next edition of the Arts Scene magazine:

You know ski season and bike season… now get on board with ARTS SEASON!
Fall for Arts 2018 is our 3rd annual celebration of EVERYTHING ARTS in the Sea to Sky. From September 1 – December 31, 2018 there are so many creative festivals, events, holidays, and celebrations, and we want you to be a part of it!

Arts, the scene that just keeps growing!

All of the content is generated by members of our community and the amount of content in the printed magazine and traffic to the online calendar continue to grow!
More and more people are discovering the creative side of our towns, including arts programming in their festivals, buying handmade gifts, and hanging local art on their walls. Now that’s a win!

Scroll down to see our list of questions and answers for more information about how to post, cover art, advertising opportunities, map locations, and more.

We look forward to seeing your events!

You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers:

  • What’s the deadline?:
    August 1 is the hard deadline to submit your events to be included in the print magazine but events can be added to our website anytime and will be included in regular outreach marketing.
  • How do I give you my events?
    Easy! Follow this link, click the orange “Post Your Event” button, and fill out the online form.
  • How much does it cost?
    It’s FREE! Arts Whistler is a non-profit charity organization, we have a mandate to help support our local creatives and to help foster the arts in Whistler.
  • Why should I participate?
    Fall for Arts is our largest marketing campaign, post your events and take advantage of the extra attention! With creative festivals and big events like the Whistler Village Beer Festival, Cornucopia, Whistler Writers Festival, Arts Whistler’s Holiday Market and the Whistler Film Festival anchoring the publication – there’s a reason we call it Arts Season! Stay tuned for news about the Fall for Arts and all the fun we have planned for the opening weekend!
    Our printed Arts Scenes are distributed around Whistler and throughout the Sea to Sky. Your events will also be promoted on our website, in our newsletters, on our social media channels, and in printed marketing collateral throughout the season.
    (Take a look at our current and past editions).
  • I’m not sure if you want my event? 
    We promote everything arts, culture, and heritage throughout the Sea to Sky – that’s from Bowen Island all the way up to Mt. Currie. If you have any events, workshops, gallery openings, festivals, live music, films, artist calls for entry, kids workshops… between September 1 – December 31, 2018 we’d love to hear about them!
    * Make sure to submit your events for holidays such as Halloween, Christmas and New Years Eve!

    Still not sure about your event? Shoot us an email, we’re happy to help.
  • What about the maps? My art is hanging in a local shop, can I add it to your listings?
    Our Culture Maps are listed in every edition of Arts Scene and include the We Heart Local Art venues and artists. Following on the years of ArtWalk success, We Heart Local Art enables businesses to directly connect with local artists to display artwork on their walls. Think of it as an online dating service…but for art! Find out more.
  • How do you get on the cover?
    Previous issues of Arts Scene have all featured cover art created by a local artist, and we want your work to be next!
    All Arts Whistler Members can submit their piece for consideration for the upcoming Fall for Arts edition of Arts Scene, but hurry – the deadline to submit is August 1, 2018!
    The chosen artist will be given an honorarium, an Artist Conversations feature on our blog, and the chance to see their art all over the Sea to Sky for a whole season.
    Find out more about becoming a member.

    Don’t have anything to submit right now, but still interested in being featured in a future Art Scene issue? Keep us in mind as you create over the next season – the following date to submit will be December 1, 2018 for our winter edition.

  • Can I purchase an ad in Arts Scene?
    We want to keep the publication chock full of events and listings and not fill it up with advertising. We have a very limited amount of ad spaces reserved for our premier sponsors and have room for a couple of purchased ads. If you’re interested in purchasing an ad, please email marketing@artswhistler.com for details.
  • Ummm, thanks but I still have questions…If you have any questions about what we do at Arts Whistler, questions about Arts Scene, or how to get involved in the local creative scene – get in touch! marketing@artswhistler.com
