Posting your event

To post an event, visit publiclab.org/post. Use the Templates dropdown menu to choose Post an Event. You will see the headers change in the form:

To easily connect an event with a particular place, go to the relevant place page (view all current places here: publiclab.org/places) and look in the left sidebar for the "Post an Event" button. When you use this button, your event will be posted and properly tagged.

Advanced: If you have recently created a new place page and wish to add event listings and a "Post an Event" button to your left sidebar, tag your page with events:theregionname, for example events:gulf-coast. If you have questions, email web@publiclab.org.

Google calendar

We also have a Google calendar, which is how you get listed on the http://publiclab.org/events page. To have your event shown on this calendar, email organizers@publiclab.org.

Track your event

If you hold a local event, please use this form to tell the non-profit arm of Public Lab about it! If you submit multiple events and would ever like to get a summary, simply email staff@publiclab.org. Thanks!
