Do you have a Southern California concert, theater production, art gallery exhibit, dance show, etc. that you would like in the Artists’ Work B.e.n.c.h. calendar? (Events do not necessarily have to be connected to churches.) Please e-mail information to epistrophy@aol.com. If your event meshes with the mission of Artists’ Work B.e.n.c.h., we will post it.
-It has to promote a mainline Christian worldview (although it doesn’t necessarily have to be in a church or even church-y).
-It has to be fine arts related (concert, gallery show, performance, etc.)
-It cannot be on Sunday morning because that conflicts with the hours most of our members go to church. If you have an event taking place on Sunday morning, you want new people, unchurched people, to come, not a bunch of Christians on a field trip.
-Priority is given to events that include active Artists Work B.e.n.c.h. members
