New Media Arts Event calendar

This post is used to create a published events calendar for New Media Arts Inc.  After publication,  I will make a 1 prim poster to display it.  Note that this calendar carries events other than those sponsored by New Media Arts Inc.   Thus, other venues may also be interested in displaying it on their land.  A multi-source calendar carries more information, gets wider distribution, and offers more benefit to the public.
