JHU working with Artscape planners to carry out space theme

As Johns Hopkins supports and celebrates the city it calls home, the university is proud to once again be a sponsor for Artscape. This three-day festival is America's largest free art festival, and the 2016 edition will take place in Baltimore from July 15 to 17.

In addition to sponsoring the Station North music stage for the second year, the university is working with the festival planning committee to generate bright ideas to carry out this year's theme, Space: Explore What's Out There.

Does your department, center, or group have a demonstration that would be a crowd-pleaser? An engaging, family-friendly, hands-on project? An entertaining look at a space-related subject? Interested JHU community members can email suggestions to the university's Office of Communications at

Artscape needs participants who will bring their programming ideas to life at the event. Its planning committee will vet the proposals and reach out to possible partners regarding the next steps, so don't forget to put your complete contact information in the email. Although the festival is three days in length, your proposal/idea/project does not need to take place each day. You have the option of participating in time slots of programming, designated by the festival coordinators.
