Our Community Calendar is a resource we offer to all qualified nonprofits. Community Calendar events are highlighted live, on-air throughout the day on KCPW. Featured events are chosen at random. You will also find all current Community Calendar events listed here at kcpw.org.

PLEASE NOTE: Our Community Calendar now also has a physical home. Following the criteria listed below, bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10. We’ll happily hang them in our window for all Library Square traffic to see.

To submit an event to the Community Calendar, the event must meet the following criteria:

  • The event must take place in Utah.
  • The organization promoting the event  must be a qualified 501 (c) (3) charity or political subdivision.
  • The event cannot promote a religious organization or individual.

If your event meets these criteria, click “Post Your Event” below. Include your contact information in case we have any questions. Otherwise, your event may not get published.

KCPW would like to encourage you to make the most of your post by adding a featured image and links to your organization.  Utilize the provided field boxes (i.e. location, ticket information) to display information as accurately and quickly as possible.  Please do not submit duplicate postings for the same event.

Please submit requests at least 10-14 days before your event – event listings read  on-air are chosen at random, at least two weeks prior to the event.

Broadway Speakers Toastmasters Club @ Key Bank Building - 25th Floor Conference Room

Broadway Speakers Toastmasters Club @ Key Bank Building - 25th Floor Conference Room | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Toastmasters International is a nonprofit educational organization that teaches public speaking and leadership skills through a worldwide network of clubs.

In our community of learners, people improve their communication and leadership skills by filling meeting roles, ranging from giving a prepared or an impromptu speech to serving as timer, evaluator or grammarian. There is no instructor; instead, each speech and meeting is critiqued by a member in a positive manner, focusing on what was done correctly and what could be improved.

The Broadway Speakers club is known for our warm and friendly environment. We cater to people working in the downtown Salt Lake City area. Our meetings (scheduled for each Tuesday) are held to under an hour, from 12:10 to 1:00, in order to fit within busy calendars. Visit us and see if the club is a good fit for you!

May 5 @ 7:00 pm
Jung Society of Utah Presents: The Wilderness of the Wisdom of Your Body @ Salt Lake City Downtown Library | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Title: The Wisdom in the Wilderness of Your Body

Description: Distinct from the approach of living and healing that is based primarily in intellect and language, the living territory of embodiment, as beautiful, wild, unpredictable and vibrantly alive as the wilderness, offers vast untapped wisdom that can benefit not only individual healing and evolution but that of our world. As we re-center ourselves in the living experience of embodied aliveness, new possibilities emerge, along with an empowering way of knowing, being, and moving in the world.

About the speakers: Erin Geesaman Rabke and Carl Rabke have each steeped in wisdom traditions and embodied practices for more than 20 years. Trained as Embodied Life Teachers, Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioners, yoga instructors, tai chi players, and long-time meditators; Carl also works as a Structural Integrator. They bring a wealth of embodied knowledge and teaching experience which they are dedicated to sharing with others. Their online home and much-loved writings can be found at www.bodyhappy.com
Date: May 5th
Time: 7-9pm
