Organisations on ArtRabbit include art organisations of any scale, galleries, project spaces, artist-run spaces, cultural organisations and educational organisations. If you’re one of the above, make the most of ArtRabbit and be sure to do all of the following:
Sign up for an account ✔️
Read our Community Guidelines ✔️
Our Community Guidelines are an important code of conduct for maintaining a safe, useful and welcoming platform for all.
List or claim your organisation ✔️
Use the search bar to find your organisation on ArtRabbit. If it exists, go to its dedicated organisation page and click on the ‘claim’ button, then follow the prompts.
If your organisation or venue is not yet on ArtRabbit, you can list the venue here.
Verify your organisation page ✔️
If you're creating your organisation page, be sure to tick "Yes" under the questions "Are you the owner or administrator of the venue?"
If your organisation has already been added, you'll need to claim it to verify it.
Make sure you're logged into ArtRabbit using an email address associated with your organisation, then simply navigate to your organisation page, click "Claim - Claim this organisation", fill in the short form and click "Next".
After this is complete, we'll verify your organisation so that it'll get a snazzy green check badge on its page, a feature that will make it more popular among our users.
List your events ✔️
Have an event coming up? List the event here, or navigate to your dedicated organisation page on ArtRabbit and click on the “add event” button. By adding an event from your organisation page, the location details will be pre-filled.
If your event is taking place in London, the UK, Berlin, or New York, (more locations to come!) we’ll include them in our weekly location-specific newsletters. Every listed exhibition is considered, no matter how small, so make sure your events and exhibitions are on the ArtRabbit platform.
List your festival, biennale or art week ✔️
Organising a festival, biennial, art week or any other type of umbrella event that's taking place across several venues? Here's how to can use ArtRabbit to your advantage: First, list your main event with as much information as possible. Then, list all related events at their respective art venues. You'll see an option to "Add related event" for each event you add. Start typing in the name of your main event, then select your main event from the dropdown and confirm the relation by clicking the "Relate" button. We'll take care of the rest.
