ArtStarts in Schools invites performing artists from all disciplines—theatre, music, dance, storytelling, interdisciplinary and more—to apply to perform at our annual ArtStarts Showcase and Conference and be positioned to tour BC schools.
Artists accepted to perform at the ArtStarts Showcase and Conference will also be listed in the Artists on Tour Directory, an annual resource (print and online) produced by ArtStarts that features listings of professional artists available to perform in urban, rural and remote regions across BC. This resource is accessed by schools and districts across the province who book performances through ArtStarts' Booking and Touring service. Last year, ArtStarts booked approximately 1,900 performances in 200 communities across BC.
