It’s only just September, and my mind is on October. October is National Arts and Humanities Month, and Baltimore annually celebrates in grand fashion with Free Fall Baltimore, which is a program of the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts. This year, GBCA is involved in two projects for Free Fall–one for the literary arts community, and one in the theatres.
Each year, GBCA serves as the regional administrator for TCG’s Free Night of Theater, where organizations are encouraged to make free tickets available for new audiences. With assistance from Free Fall Baltimore, tickets for this year’s Free Night will be available at FreeNightBaltimore.com, which is an “Enter-to-Win” ticket system. On the site, you’ll be able to register for an opportunity to see up to five productions in Baltimore. If you’re an audience member, go to FreeNightBaltimore.com to register for tickets. If you’re an area theatre company and you’d like to participate, please contact me and I’ll get you set up with an account.
The second project is Literary Arts Week which will run October 15-22. GBCA, in partnership with Maryland State Arts Council, CityLit Project have coordinated 15 events at eight places, ranging from play readings to lectures. For those events visit the Free Fall Baltimore site. All events are free, but advance registration may be required.
Until next week–
