Are you an artist interested in reaching new audiences by bringing your touring performance or workshop to schools? Do you want to inspire young people to learn about the world and themselves through the arts? 

Apply to the ArtStarts Showcase - an event that brings together a network of schools and arts programmers interested in booking arts experiences for young audiences. Successful applicants will join the ArtStarts Artists on Tour Directory and be supported to tour schools across BC. 

Additional benefits include:

  • An integrated booking service to facilitate school tours
  • A marketing platform to share your work suited for young audiences
  • Professional development opportunities to continue to expand your practice and connect with peers and mentors

The 2019 ArtStarts Showcase will be presented in Vancouver, BC (exact location TBA) on March 4-5, 2019. Approximately 30 artists across disciplines will present a sample of their touring performance or workshop followed by a Q&A.

Application Deadline: October 31
