WXPR and ArtStart Present....In Progress

In Progress is back in person! Join us online or at ArtStart in downtown Rhinelander on Wednesday, June 30th at 7PM. The event will be held outside on ArtStart’s outdoor stage (unless it rains in which case we’ll be inside the building).
All of our staff and volunteers are fully vaccinated and careful protocols for social distancing will be employed for our in person gathering. However, we wanted to make sure the event was still accessible for those who choose to not attend in person. The event will still be live-streamed on ArtStart Rhinelander's Facebook page and for those who would like to perform virtually, you can still submit videos to be played during the event.
Please pay attention to all of the requirements and necessary information to ensure that you secure a slot either digitally or in person. There are limited spots for both, so it will be first-come, first-served.
No walk-ups will be accepted for this event to ensure proper safety protocols.
Deadline for digital submissions is midnight on Tuesday, June 30th.
For those who would like to join us in person during the event (whether as a performer or an audience member), the following protocols will be in place:
- Whether you are performing or just attending, please wear a mask unless you are fully vaccinated. Performers may remove them during their performances.
- Performers are encouraged to bring their own microphones, but we will provide disposable microphone covers for those who need them.
- If you are feeling at all sick or showing any symptoms of sickness, please do not attend in person. The event will be live-streamed and we encourage you to attend online (through ArtStart's Facebook page).
