Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Login To Edit My Account?

It’s really simple to login to get into your Arts Derbyshire profile. Simply click on the ‘login’ button that is at the top of every page in the website and enter your username and password to be taken to your profile dashboard:


How Do I Sign Up For An Account?

If you don’t have an account then you can register for a profile right here at the link below. Once you have a profile you will be able to add an artist/arts organisation listing or a venue listing in our directory. You will be able to add your creative business details and your events:

Once you have applied, the Editor will approve your application and you will receive an email telling you that you are now invited to login to create a directory listing and add your events to your account


Can I Have More Than One Artists/Arts Org Profile or Venue?

Yes! Lots of artists run multiple ‘microbusinesses’ that are totally separate in scope or what services are offered.  If this sounds like you and you have a portfolio career, then you can create another artist’s or arts organisation listing on your account under your same profile. Simply register for an account per the process outlined above and then you can create multiple individual listings for the website for the multiple businesses you might run, all under one login.


How Do I Manage My Email Preferences?

At the bottom of every page in the website you can sign up for our monthly ‘What’s On’ newsletter that will give you lots of ideas about all the exciting things to do in our county.  Just add your email and submit it to get added to the list.

For professionals in the Arts industry, we also have a series of professional network mailing lists for information about specific art forms or facets of the Arts Industry.  Find these on this page on our website:

How Do I Submit My Arts Event To The Arts Derbyshire Website?

To submit events for inclusion on the Arts Derbyshire website, you need to be a registered member with an artist’s/arts org or venues profile.

If you are not a registered member then you can register for an account right here to get one or more listings in our directory:

After you have registered, you can login to your account here:

Once logged in, you can add your events to the website by following these steps:

  • From the Dashboard, click ‘Add New Event’ in the left hand navigation.
  • Fill out all the fields to describe your event in the ‘Event’ tab including adding an image to illustrate your event, a date and the location.
  • On the ‘Relationships’ tab you can also select an artist/arts organisation profile to associate with the event, and you can also choose a venue if a venue is already listed on our website.  This will then show your events alongside that particular artist’s/arts org’s directory listing or the venue listing as well as show up in the ‘What’s On’ section of the website.


How Do I Submit Multi-Date Range Events?

First set up an event for your What’s On item and fill out all the details per the instructions above.  Once you have published this first event you can then go back to ‘edit’ this event and click the ‘duplicate event’ button on the right hand side. This will create a copy that you can go and take a look at and edit in your ‘All events’ list.

Simply duplicate as many times as you would like, and then go back in and edit the date to have your event come up over multiple days (say, for a week-long exhibition, or weekly workshops or classes).
