How to Submit a Successful Festival Application
Are you an artist that’s thinking of applying to the Joplin Arts Fest or other art festivals? Well then, we have the workshop for you. On Tuesday, March 14th, the organizing sponsors of the Joplin Arts Fest—Spiva, JRAC, Connect2 Culture and Kiwanis Club of Joplin, are co-sponsoring a workshop designed to help prepare you to submit an online application through Zapplication. The workshop will focus on three major aspects of applying to art festivals: 1) identifying the type and size of festival that best fits your needs; 2) photographing, selecting and identifying images of your art and booth to submit with your application; and 3) completing and submitting your application. This workshop will be held at Spiva Center for the Arts in Joplin, MO and will be conducted by Steve Doerr. It is schedule from 6:30PM to 8:30PM. Time for discussion will be provided within that time period. Light refreshments will be served.
A follow-up hands on workshop, for those wishing some assistance in producing their application photos will be held on Tuesday, March 28th, at Carthage High School from 6:00PM to 8:00PM. You will be able to take pictures of your art, as well as crop and size your pictures for use in applying to art festivals on Zapp. This workshop will be conducted in a computer lab and taught by Cheryl Church.
If you are interested in one or both of these workshops, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
