ArtStarts' provides students equitable access to artistic experiences that are relevant, representative, and integrated into their learning. The Artists on Tour Directory features over 90 performing artists available to tour in BC, representing a wide range of disciplines and cultural backgrounds. We facilitate this process through a convenient booking service for schools across the province. Our Booking and Touring team is here to assist you!

To discover talent in person, be sure to attend our annual ArtStarts Showcase!
*Performance and workshop listings for the 2020-21 school year are now available to view and book. Please note that as there is still quite a bit of uncertainty around the 2020/21 school year, we don't yet know when or if artists will be able to tour again. We will be accepting booking requests from schools and districts but won't be able to schedule or confirm any tour dates until we have some more clarity and restrictions are lifted.*
