Project Overview

Equal Sound has taken stewardship of the Los Angeles performing arts website New Classic LA, and it needs a major overhaul. The most important item is the event calendar, but we also see the new site as acting as a database for new music in Los Angeles, with listings for artists, venues, resources, and more. We are seeking a volunteer skilled in Wordpress development, Beaver Builder, and Advanced Custom Fields Pro to build an event calendar system that the public can submit events to, with drop downs for them to select artists, composers, and venues (which would both be custom post types) and the ability to add a field for ticket links.
New Classic LA is a website about the city’s best and most interesting new avant-garde, experimental, post-classical, or otherwise progressive music. The site has been up for over a decade, run in a DIY way, and we've recently been acquired by the nonprofit Equal Sound and brought on a small board to make the site truly sustainable and able to grow and draw wider attention to the vital and vibrant performing arts scene in LA. This is the start of something major, and you can have a hand in the shape it takes as we start the next phase.
We've purchased the required hosting, and have a live site now. We also have a process outlined for how users might submit events, and I've got a background in web design myself so can point to specifics as needed.

Once the project is complete, we'll implement it by making it live, and using it as the basis for the next stage of growth for us.
