Hosting an event?

If it’s an event, workshop or other programming open to the RISD community and/or the broader public, post it on events.risd.edu via the “Submit an Event” button, which will direct you to a Localist-powered events management platform. Anyone with a RISD email address and login credentials can post events.

Community-created events listings are a key source of content for other communication channels, such as social media. If you plan to record and post your event, include the following in the listing: “Please note: This event will be recorded and posted online by RISD and may also be posted by any external parties involved; please turn off your video if you do not wish to have your image shown."

Have alumni news to share?

Encourage alumni to submit their updates directly via the alumni.risd.edu submission form. News published on the site will be considered for social media channels and other communication streams.

Have student, faculty, staff or departmental news to share?

Email it to Jaime Marland for consideration on institutional channels and, as relevant, the above newsletter managers.
