We are launching our second round of talks featuring rad humans from The Temple. Hosted by PlatteForum, a regular series of presentations which present topics in art and/or social change, each one featuring BOTH a Temple resident artist paired with a local change agent. These lectures could range anywhere from the content of your artwork, to urgent social justice issues, preferable both, and how they connect. All talks are free and open to the public.

Each presenter of the duo is paid a $150 stipend for their partnership presentation and together will create one 90-minute evening event. This stipend includes compensation for your planning and setup time.

Please holler at me: Rebecca Vaughan, Artistic Director at PlatteForum, rvaughan@platteforum.org  to let me know if you are interested!

Pop Up Exhibitions

Have a 2-WEEK show in our 4000 square foot PlatteForum space! You get the space for 2 whole weeks to install a show, host your own reception and then voila! be outta there! Exhibitions must address topics of social justice and change. Exhibitions must be free and open to the public. When noodling over your show concept, we ask that you be cognizant of the fact that our space is shared with underage children. PlatteForum will not ask for any sales commissions during the exhibition. ALL exhibition artists must attend a mandatory orientation with Rebecca Vaughan, gate-keeper of all things gallery space 😉

Pop-Up dates for the 2016/17 Season on the following dates, all occur from 5pm Thursdays to 5pm Saturdays:  January 18 – February 3rd, 2018

  • A refundable security deposit of $500; if the space is not returned in the same condition, we will use your deposit to cover repairs and/or cleaning and you will be restricted from any future use of the PlatteForum space.

  • Absolutely no liquor is allowed at the free public opening events.

  • After the event, report visitor attendance by county of residence (we need this for SCFD head counts).
