In preparation for our 18th annual event on Sunday, September 18th, 2022 (rain date September 25th), we ask that all organizations planning to demonstrate review the following General Guidelines and complete this Google Form by Friday, September 2, 2022.
- By applying you are committing to both the September 18th date and the September 25th rain date. No-Shows may not be invited to participate again.
- stART on the Street events are one day outdoor festivals on paved street surfaces in Worcester, MA. We often use street space, sidewalk areas, and green spaces along Park Avenue. Please plan accordingly - dress in layers, hydrate, and consider comfortable shoes and sun protection.
- If you are planning to use one or more tents, tents must be 10ft x 10ft or smaller, and weighted with 20lbs per leg. For safety of people and property, stART Coordinators will require any tent not properly weighted to be taken down.
- Tables, chairs, water, and electricity are not automatically offered. If your demonstration requires any of these items, it must be requested below. stART will accommodate if possible.
- stART does not have access to running water during the festival. Any demonstrations which require more than drinking water must provide their own. (Individual-sized bottled drinking water will be available for sale around the festival.)
- Space determinations are made at the discretion of the stART Logistics team using the information provided below. stART may reach out with additional questions, please make every effort to respond promptly.
- Arrival instructions will be sent to the email specified below approximately 10 days before the festival. Please communicate any questions or concerns ASAP, as the days leading up to the festival tend to be very hectic for organizers and we want to ensure a smooth, enjoyable experience for everyone!
- Event organizers reserve the right to reject any application at their discretion.
- A key element of our mission is to elevate the voices and experiences of historically marginalized groups to highlight the current and historical diversity of our city and region. We welcome and celebrate demonstrations from artists, organizations, and community members who identify as Black, Indigenous, POC, refugee, LGBTQIA+, immigrant, or persons living with a disability.
