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."
