Salt Lake City, UT – Although the COVID-19 pandemic has halted our in-person events at the moment, Craft Lake City® is as dedicated as ever to supporting and assisting the Utah creative community. Therefore, Craft Lake City will be offering a Virtual Application Assistance Day for the Virtual 12th Annual Craft Lake City DIY Festival® Presented By Harmons on Tuesday, June 9, beginning at 12 p.m. The event is free and open to the public, but online registration is required to participate.
Craft Lake City team members will be virtually ready to help answer all applicant questions, walk through the website and application process, and offer a short tutorial about how to take the best product photos with a cell phone. Specific virtual meeting details can be located on our website.
“We want our local artisans and greater Utah creatives to know that we remain committed to supporting and encouraging them to ‘keep innovating’,” said Angela H. Brown, Executive Director of Craft Lake City. “We hope that all virtual attendees leave with knowledge and support that they need to complete the application process for the Virtual 12th Annual Craft Lake City DIY Festival Presented By Harmons.”
Application Assistance Days are an initiative of the Craft Lake City DIY Festival Inclusion Program, developed as part of the organization’s overall diversity and inclusion strategy. The goal of the Craft Lake City DIY Festival Inclusion Program is to support individuals from underrepresented and/or socially or economically excluded communities in order to provide all local makers with opportunities to creatively and economically thrive.
The Virtual Application Assistance Day for the 12th Annual Craft Lake City DIY Festival Presented By Harmons is open to all applicants who would like help applying for the Craft Lake City DIY Festival. Craft Lake City recommends applying early to avoid the last-minute rush. If local creatives do not have access to a computer, they may schedule a socially-distanced meeting to complete an online DIY Festival application by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 801-906-8521.
Applications for the Virtual 12th Annual Craft Lake City DIY Festival will remain open through June 15; participants will be announced July 1. The Virtual DIY Festival will be held Friday, Aug. 7 through Sunday, Aug. 9. More information can be found online.
