The WHQR Cultural Calendar is based on a broader definition of "culture" than just "arts" activities. Feel free to submit events that may not fit the standard definition of a "cultural activity."
Activities and events that are eligible for listing on the Calendar include: plays and dramatic readings; concerts, including presentations of sacred music; films at noncommercial locations; lectures, forums & conferences on arts, culture, history, current issues, religion, ethics, nature, architecture, folklore, etc.; antique, home & garden shows (noncommercial); cultural fundraiser events (such as dances, concerts, arts auctions, etc.); book readings and signings; home and garden tours (noncommercial); holiday events (including Veteran's Day, Memorial Day, 4th July, etc.); ethnic festivals and folk dance.
Events that are not eligible include: religious worship services, revivals, or other religious practices; religious instruction or sectarian study groups; political rallies, campaign speeches (unless part of a panel), activities of political parties; school fairs and open houses; grand openings of businesses; regular meetings of organizations and clubs; sporting events; events not open to the public.
Listings must be approved and may take up to 4 business days to appear on the Community Calendar. Not all on-line listings will be read on the air. If you’d like further information about promoting your event, our Underwriting specialist Jeff Hunter can assist. If you are having trouble submitting your event or need to amend an event you submitted, please contact Sharpe Williams, Development Associate.
