ABOUT

To kick off the summer, Monmouth Arts is launching a sequel to our Virtual Stage + Showcase: The Summer ArtSpace! This opportunity gives young artists a platform to build a community of self-expression and support. Plus, there are Rook Coffee and Playa Bowls prizes involved! You can participate by simply submitting art of any kind (including dance, music, creative writing, photography, and visual art) that responds to the prompt of the week.

HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?

Submit your art to the form at the top of this page! A new prompt will be posted every Friday and submissions will be due every Wednesday! At the end of each week, we will share a compilation on our website and social media channels (Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter) featuring all the submissions from that week.

WHO CAN ENTER?

Any Monmouth County resident between the ages of 13-25 is eligible to submit an entry! Entrants must currently be following Monmouth Arts on Instagram (@MonmouthArts). Bonus: If you are a student member of Monmouth Arts, you will automatically be entered into a raffle to win prizes from Rook Coffee and Playa Bowls! If you'd like to become a student member, click here! It's free to join!

QUESTIONS?

Have questions regarding The Summer ArtSpace? Reach out to apply@monmoutharts.org and the creator of this project, Catie Procyk, or another staff member would be happy to help!
