Significant project activities might include (but are not limited to) creation of artwork, festivals, concerts, performances, readings, classes, lectures, demonstrations, workshops, symposiums, conferences, exhibitions, film screenings, school or community residencies, artwork conservation, urban planning/design, and publishing.

If an activity took place at the same location multiple times, please select the first month of activity. Each location need only be entered once.

Before proceeding, please read the instructions for completing the GEO spreadsheet (pdf). Do not modify the format of the spreadsheet.
