Welcome to the new and improved KC Studio Arts Calendar.

Our new and improved arts calendar adds another layer of control with the addition of “Organizers” for event listings. There are times when an event is being held by a group or foundation, but the event venue is at another location. The new “Organizer” category addresses this dilemma. On this page you can learn more about components of the new calendar and how to submit or edit your event.

Components of the Arts Calendar

Event Page

Event pages include description about the event, organizer, venue, and map of the location.  These items are then clickable to look at other events happening at the venue or being organized by the same organizer.

It is with great excitement that we are able to provide a means of grouping all events being conducted by a group at multiple venues in one location.  Examples include: Kemper, Public Libraries, Charlotte Street Foundation, etc.


Venue Page

Venue pages are an excellent location to to quickly reference all of the events occurring at a specific location regardless of the event category or organizer. Venue pages include address and map of the venue location.
