Scroll down the page and you'll find this form. Fill in the approriate details, including roughly how often you hold events, your event's name and a brief summary. We've written our own example summary for you to see above. Following that, write a more indepth description of the event, including as many details as you like.

Further down the page is space for more details. Important: when uploading an event to Art Take Part, you must select the category Classes & Courses for it to end up on the site. When you have done that, entered target ages, your website and number, press "Next Step" to continue.

Next you can choose the dates your event runs on, whether you're picking specific dates or a length of days during which your event runs.

If you have picked out specific dates, you will be asked to list the start and finish times for each individual day of the event. Or....

If you chose the "Long-running event" option, you will be asked how often the event runs, on what days of the week and also the start and finish times of each day. When you are done with this, press "Next Step".
