Create an Account

First check the NCAN Directory to see if your Organization is already part of NCAN.

A) If your Organization is already on Smorgborg, your Admin can enter your events.

If you are not sure who the admin is or if you have a User account:

  • Go to and click on “Log In” in the top right corner.
  • Click “Forgot Password?”
  • Enter your email address associated with your previous NCAN login and click the “Send Recovery Email” button
  • Go to your email inbox (sometimes in Spam) to the “Password Recovery Request” email from “Smorgborg Accounts” and click the “Reset Password” button
  • Enter your new password

You will be taken to a page that reveals Organizations/Artist profiles that you administer. Choose one to go to its dashboard.

You are now logged in to your Organization Account. To get your events in the system go here.

B) If your Organization is NOT part of the NCAN Directory, you will need to create a new Organization profile in Smorgborg.

By clicking here, you will be able to create a new User profile and Organization/Artist account. You will be requesting to join the NCAN community on Smorgborg.

  • Create your individual login
  • Complete your Organization/Professional Artist profile
  • Enter any upcoming events you have (details here)
    • Using 3rd party integration features with Eventbrite, Meetup, Google, Events Calendar etc.
    • or Manually in Smorgborg

Once you have been approved by NCAN, your events will appear on the Community calendar automatically and you will also appear in the NCAN Directory.


Other information:

Art Organizations, Art Resources and Artists all use the same form to appear in the NCAN Directory.

  • Multiple people can be Admins for an Organization’s Account in Smorgborg. Read more here.
  • If you are an individual listing as a visual or performing artist just use your professional name as the Organization name. e. g. Jane Doe, Artist.
  • Be sure to enter things like logos, descriptions and URL’s to improve your profile.
  • Your request to join NCAN will need to be approved and this may take 24+ hours.  In the meantime,  you can edit your listing, add events, opportunities and articles on Smorgborg that can be sent to your own mailing list.
