K.Co Arts Policies and Information (2021)

How to Work with Us!

If you like what we do and would like to be part of it, or think we'd be a great fit to help highlight art in your city, there are a few easy ways to work with us, including free and paid promotions on one of our city art maps; hiring us to produce great content that highlights your creative city, and working with us on branded tour planning. Contact us for more information on these services.

General policies:

 

Sponsorship & Partnership Opportunities: Art spaces, artists and other featured community spaces we visit and share appear in our content free of charge, based on our own personal recommendations. Paid placement may be available on select content platforms for shopping, dining and for-profit businesses on a limited basis, and will be clearly identified as such.

Map Listings:  Museums, galleries and other community/nonprofit art spaces may request one basic listing (name + location) on our city art maps. Enhanced listings are available for purchase at a variety of levels.

 

Independent restaurants, shopping and other businesses may purchase listings for the city they operate in.

In the interest of clarity and space, there are no paid listing opportunities for curated itinerary maps.


Refunds & Exchanges: No refunds offered on electronic products, after completion of broad consulting sessions or after project delivery. Refunds for our hosted tours are available up to seven days before the event. In some circumstances, partial deposit refunds may be available, if no work has been initiated.

 

Project Cancellation Fees: A cancellation fee based on a percentage of the total project's cost, plus expenses thus far, will be invoiced for cancelled projects. Listings cancelled mid-month will not renew the following month, no partial refunds.

 

Paid Work Disclaimer:

Sponsorships and other paid promotional opportunities on K.Co hosted and branded platforms, publications and events stand alone and do not transfer to, influence or overlap with consulting engagements, recommendations or other instances where the best interest of the end user is paramount. Paid opportunities and potential sponsor benefits will be clearly communicated, confirmed and highlighted in proposals, working agreements and other documentation, and sponsored content on K.Co platforms will be clearly labeled as such.

We do not act in an advisory role on our content, projects or engagements. If we help you discover a special piece, please contact the art space directly.

General Art Map Policies:

 

Basic free listings are offered to art galleries, museums and community/nonprofit art spaces. Paid Enhanced listings are available.

Additional paid listings are offered to local independent dining, shopping, boutique hospitality and recreation businesses.

These paid promotional spots are available on our city location maps (i.e. Art in Dallas, Art in Atlanta, etc.)

Our interactive maps provide a safer, self-guided way for locals and guests to have Art Adventures, and provide valuable attention to art communities. With that in mind, CVB, destination managers, travel concierge, brands, art spaces and other businesses are encouraged to link to our maps free of charge on their digital and traditional materials. Please contact us for a QR code for print materials.

To use our maps, please credit us in the following language "(Your City) Art Guide courtesy of K.Co Press" with a live link or web listing pointing to: www.kcoarts.com.

Art Maps are updated every three months or on request if you have moved locations, closed, or are newly-opened. Please email hello@kcoarts.com with your new information, and allow one week for changes to activate. Our next planned update will be in March 2021.

Please contact us for a fee table and more information: hello@kcoarts.com.

General Policies for In-Person Tours:

While we love connecting all others to art, we do reserve the right to decline or disengage from clients or tour guests that appear aggressive, violent or under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Dignified interactions extend to protect our collaborators, art space partners, and creative vendors as well.

Due to the personal and sometimes adult nature of the artwork and intimate, fragile gallery settings, our tour services are best for ages 15 +, unless specified. Ages 15-18 must be accompanied by an adult family member, guardian, or educator.

Our tours allow service animals only.

K.Co Arts staff, partners and guests are expected to abide by the host gallery, art space or art studio's policies on site.

K. Co values diversity. We are proud to promote, engage and work with individuals from all cultural, ethnic and gender backgrounds.

(Due to Covid-19, in-person tours are suspended until November 2021. Until then, please enjoy our guides, maps and curated itineraries.)


Speaking Engagements:

Stephanie Khattak is available for speaking engagements, panel discussions and hosted custom art tours for brands, groups and collectors. We prioritize engagements that include broad cultural representation and may offer lower rates or participate pro bono to serve underrepresented groups and organizations. (Due to Covid-19, we are suspending in-person engagements through September 2021.)

Business Hours & Availability:

K.Co Arts regular business hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday; 9:30 to noon on Friday, and Saturday by appointment. We are totally closed for business on Sundays.

Holiday hours and other planned closures:

At K.Co Arts, we believe that art is everywhere, and that we are all better together.
