Starter Kit

Download the Kit

Be sure to thoroughly review this Collaborator Starter Kit before you submit your event concept proposal and mini-grant application.

It provides important upfront information about what it means to be a Reimagine collaborator, an overview of the planning process, FAQs for your submission, and even some event planning resources and best practices.

Concept Proposal

Submit Your Event

Completing this form serves as your intent to participate in the festival as a collaborator. You must submit an event concept proposal, which is simply high-level information about what you are planning to contribute. (Your full event details for the website and ticketing will not be due until later this summer.)

In the same form, you also have the opportunity to apply for a mini-grant of up to $500 to help support your efforts! (See Collaborator Starter Kit for information about evaluation criteria.)

NOTE: You can host events from Oct. 25 - Nov. 2 (Oct. 24 and Nov. 3 – the first and last day of the festival – are held for Reimagine-produced happenings).

Deadline to submit is Sunday, June 2 at 11:59pm Pacific.
