City Arts Nashua’s 17th annual ArtWeek seeks participants

City Arts Nashua, in collaboration with Access Nashua Community Television, has announced a call for artists, writers and performers to register and participate in the 17th annual ArtWalk ArtWeek, happening Oct. 16–23 this year.

Last year during the pandemic, City Arts Nashua transformed its annual ArtWalk into ArtWeek, a virtual celebration, and is continuing to do so again in 2021 to keep all participants safe while celebrating and highlighting the artists and artmaking that makes this region vibrant.

Events will be televised on Access Nashua Community Television Channel 96, streaming on accessnashua.org, cityartsnashua.org, City Arts Nashua’s social media pages and City Arts Nashua’s YouTube channel. 

About Virtual ArtWeek

With the virtual format, members of the arts community don’t need to be from the Nashua area to participate. Artists, musicians, vocalists, dancers, actors, performers, writers, poets and craftspeople can all register and participate, celebrating the diversity in and of the arts.

This will be an opportunity to share your preferred creative art form and medium to a broad virtual audience. Throughout the week, and throughout each day on Access Nashua Community Television, City Arts Nashua’s website and social media, there will be profiles of artists and their works, with posts about each artist to be displayed on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and LinkedIn.

As in 2020, you will have an opportunity to have a video produced of your art in your studio or by interview with Access Nashua Community Television staff, either at your home/studio or at their Nashua studios. 

You may already have a video of your work or performances recorded; they’d love for you to share it! If you created a video for the event last year, you can have it updated as well. If you have new work, new platforms you display your work on, or new contact information to share for the web page we created for you, this is the time to share that content, also. See the website for video submission guidelines and specifications.

Register as soon as possible for scheduling videos.  Programs created will be broadcast on Access Nashua during the week of October 16–23 and streamed there. Videos will be posted on YouTube and shared across City Arts Nashua social media platforms. 

Here’s an example of an Access Nashua Community Television artist profile, created about Nashua artist Kate Pritchard.
