How much does it cost to be a host?

There is no cost to become a host. A grant from U District Partnership funded the U District Art Walk website development.

Unlike other larger Art Walks, U District hosts are not charged a monthly fee to update their listings.

The volunteers who update the website rely on hosts to actively participate, providing content and imagery related to their latest art displays.

Does my business need to open during the normal art walk hours 5pm - 8pm?

The Art Walk works best when the hosts are open during the traditional art walk hours but we know some hosts do not have the time or staff to support being open during those hours.

We try to identify those hosts that are open during those traditional art walk hours on our home page to manage visitor expectations.

This website is more than just about 3 hours on the third Friday of every month but a resource to view local art during normal business hours the rest of the month at times that work better for the art enthusiast.

How do I submit images and media content for my business?

To submit images and or content, use our upload form located on this page under the Upload tab.

Can I have my artist or designee submit my monthly featured image and content?

Yes! Most of our owners/managers are super busy. Once your business is registered use our contact form to let us know who your artist or designated person is.  Then send your artist or designated person to the Hosts Page link at the bottom of the website. They can use the Upload form to submit the feature image and content.  Once we make the update, we will send the submitter a request for review.
