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.
If you are posting a class or workshop that requires registration, list just the first instance in the date and time, and include the details for subsequent classes in the description.
This annual panel discussion brings together scholars, artists, and religious figures to discuss spiritual and religious influence on art, and the influence of art on faith. The panel will be moderated by Rita Wright, Director of the Springville Museum of Art, and will be a respectful, thought-provoking conversation.
Topics that captivate Dan Mills include cartography and other systems of visualizing and codifying information, history and current events, satire and humor. He began to incorporate collage, and with it maps, into his work in the early 1990s. The catalyst for this was the quincentennial of the event euphemistically referred to as The First Encounter, or The Discovery of the New World, When Columbus Discovered America, among other things, and wanting to explore history rather than stories. Since that time, he has made work about history and colonization in painting/collages on large roll-down school maps, US imperialism by creating an atlas reconfiguring the world, and more recently, he has been using maps as a space to visualize data about current wars and conflicts. Mills works in various media including painting, collage, mixed media, and sculptural installations.
For a generation, some of the money we’ve spent at the gas station and the mall has gone to empower the authoritarians and the armed groups that have given us our worst foreign-born crises. How can we get ourselves out of business with the hostile petrocrats and the violent extremists? Citizens, consumers and politicians can together lead a peaceful global resource revolution, which will make us more secure at home, more trusted abroad, and better able to solve pressing global problems like climate change.

Cyberspace ain’t what it used to be. Leaks damage U.S. credibility. North Korea and Iran launch cyber attacks against American companies. Chinese cyber spies steal corporate and government data on a massive scale. Authoritarian regimes tighten control over the Internet. Terrorists exploit Twitter. Cyber crime grows. David Fidler will examine threats affecting cyberspace in peace and war and analyze challenges facing policy responses to these threats.

He has served as an international legal consultant to the World Bank and the U.S. Department of Defense’s Defense Science Board on bioterrorism, while maintaining his day-time job as a Visiting Fellow for Cybersecurity at the Council on Foreign Relations and is the James Louis Calamaras Professor of Law and a Senior Fellow at the Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research at Indiana University and an Associate Fellow with the Centre on Global Health Security at Chatham House.
Hackers and traffickers enshroud bitcoin, the mysterious new “internet money” that has been embroiled in scandal. Yet the cacophony of alarms about ponzi schemes and money laundering have drowned out bitcoin’s true revolutionary potential. Global leaders are now exploring the power of bitcoin’s underlying technology, the blockchain. We’ll discuss how this emerging technology will revolutionize how we: deliver humanitarian assistance, track foreign aid, strengthen local institutions, improve transparency and accountability, and extend banking services to the historically hard to reach.
