Please join us for an ArtWeek info session at the Yiddish Book Center January 11th at noon. This week long arts event has expanded from Boston to the rest of Massachusetts this year and we are encouraging western Mass artists and cultural organizations to participate to bring more exposure to what we have to offer.

The info session will be in the form of a webinar with ArtWeek's Sue Sullivan and will give artists of Franklin and Hamsphire Counties a chance to see each other in person at the Book Center to hopefully spark some collaborations. The session will also be available in real time online for those who are unable to come to Amherst.

Please RSVP so we can either expect you on the 11th or so we can send you the log in details for the online version.

Below is some more info on ArtWeek.

The Franklin County Chamber of Commerce and Hampshire County Regional Tourism Council have been named collaborators for the statewide 2018 ArtWeek festival happening April 27 – May 6. Applications for the festival are now available at The early bird deadline to submit an ArtWeek event is January 8, 2018, and the final deadline is February 28, 2018.

ArtWeek is an award-winning innovative festival featuring hundreds of unique and creative experiences that are hands-on, interactive or offer behind-the-scenes access to arts, culture, and the creative process. Now an annual statewide festival, ArtWeek was born in Boston in 2013 and recently expanded its footprint across the Commonwealth.

To promote the upcoming Spring 2018 festival, ArtWeek will be working with a number of statewide, regional and local collaborators. Through this partnership, we will help spread the word about ArtWeek across our networks about applying to host an ArtWeek event as well as encourage people to get out and experience the 10-day festival next spring.

RSVP here.
