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.

  • The event must take place in Utah.

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.

Repertory Dance Theatre Presents “Dabke” @ Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center
Apr 6 – Apr 8 all-day
Repertory Dance Theatre Presents "Dabke" @ Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

The final show of the season is an evening-length work by Zvi Gotheiner. Blending Middle Eastern folk dance, Arab pop music and contemporary dance, “Dabke” is about conflict in the Middle East and conflict in the world.

Recognized by The New York Times as one of Alastair Macaulay’s TOP TEN DANCE FAVORITES OF 2013, Zvi Gotheiner’s “Dabke” is based on a Middle-Eastern folk dance, a line dance often performed at weddings, holidays and community celebrations. Strongly referencing solidarity, the dancers, linked by hands or shoulders stomp the ground with complex rhythms, emphasizing their connection to the land.

Family Art Saturday: Stop & Go @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art
Apr 8 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Family Art Saturday: Stop & Go @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art |  |  |

Can moving images represent the real world? Justin Chouinard creates media sculptures, performances, and motion image artworks inspired by the limitations of film. Learn how a sequence of still images can trick the brain into seeing movement, and then illustrate your own flipbook animation for a take-home artwork that embodies both the static and cinematic.

View Justin Chouinard’s work, These Ribbons Are Substratum, in the A-I-R Space from March 17 to April 22.

About Family Art Saturday: UMOCA invites children of all ages and their families to discover our changing exhibitions and participate together in hands-on art making activities led by a trained educator. Each activity connects to a brand new idea, medium or theme explored by an artist currently exhibited in the museum. Projects are suitable from toddler to tween in a wide range of abilities. Family Art Saturday is held the second Saturday of each month from 2 to 4 p.m. This program is offered free of charge, but museum admission is a $5 suggested donation to help support our programming. Please direct any questions to our Curator of Public Engagement, Elly Baldwin: elly.baldwin@utahmoca.org or call us at 801-328-4201.
