Arts Calendar 

The Arts Calendar is produced by the Lehigh Valley Arts Council. In print, it is the go-to resource for arts and culture events in the three county region. This bi-monthly publication is distributed throughout the Lehigh Valley, both by direct mail to our members and hand-delivered to various organizations and businesses.

July / August 2020 – While new options for in-person arts activities have returned to the Lehigh Valley, digital arts experiences still abound online.

    In a normal year, we explore different ways to make a performance onstage, but in the age of COVID, what is that stage? This summer, we’ll spend two weeks romping through mediums of distance-safe performance – from old timey radio plays to NPR interviews, performative spaces to viral video crazes. Together, we’ll assemble on Zoom to go over the day’s project focus, split into breakout groups for writing and creation blitzes, and come back to share. Make sure your phone is charged, and get ready to create original performances— 2020 style!
