As an Open Studio presenter, you gain access to marketing your event on the NCGPS website and gain the exposure that comes from NCGPS sponsoring the event. Once you complete the attached form, the NCGPS OS team will review your proposal, including your available dates, and let you know whether and when we can host your Open Studio. Please refer to the NCGPS Open Studios calendar as you're considering the available dates you are offering. We aim to have one OS a month in our three regions: 1) SF/Bay Area (SF, East Bay, North Bay, South Bay) 2) Sacramento (Lake Tahoe) 3) Monterey/Santa Cruz/San Jose. If your event is selected, we'll set up the event on the NCGPS website and Eventbrite for you to accept registrations.
While we will post it on the NCGPS website and help you get set up on Eventbrite, you are responsible for marketing your event to various listserves and communicating with attendees via Eventbrite. We provide you with the link to Eventbrite to include in any emails that makes it easy for people to register. Since the OS team can't always be available on the day of or before your event, you are also responsible for using the instructions we will provide to log into Eventbrite to get the list of attendees and do any communications with your attendees.
This form needs to be completed in full in order for your Open Studio proposal to be considered for review. Incomplete answers will not be considered.
Thank you for your contribution to the NCGPS community!
Warmly, Laura and Lois (NCGPS Open Studio Team)
