- Tentative May 1 date to have people begin submitting their applications via the CoZone crowdsourcing review site, answering two questions such as: Why do you want to be a member of the CoZone, and What is your interest in collaborating with fellow CoZone creatives to enhance the region's creative culture and economy. The public will simultaneously be allowed to view and rate these submissions, so the sooner you submit, the better your chances.
- Tentative June 30 date when the public process ends and the Artisphere staff will determine the members, alternates, and full-time/drop-in mix.
**The budget for reinvesting into CoZone collaborative creative projects is based on how many full-time members ($350/mo.) agree to participate in the collaborative project, where CoZone provides $150/per participating member. So, 6 full-time members agreeing to collaborate on a creative project will be provided a $900 budget. This may or may not involve top ideas from the crowd. If it benefits Artisphere and/or involves the top ideas from the crowd, the budget may be matched by the Artisphere (ie $900 + $900 = $1800 total budget).
