Call for Artists Interested in Working With Young People: Join ArtStarts' Artists in the Classroom Directory

We would like to extend an invitation to apply to join ArtStarts’ Artists in the Classroom Directory (AICD).

The next deadline to apply is July 19, 2013, in order to be listed in the Directory starting September 2013.

What is the Artists in the Classroom Directory?

The AICD provides an up-to-date listing of practicing professional artists working in a variety of disciplines who have proven experience at delivering arts integrated projects with young people in a classroom setting. The AICD is a useful resource for educators, arts/community presenters, cultural programmers and others interested in engaging artists with this range of experience. It is also a valuable self-promotion tool for artists looking for these types of opportunities.

What are the Benefits to Artists?

The artists accepted to the AICD will enjoy benefits such as an enhanced online profile; BC-wide promotion in ArtStarts outreach and communications, including social media channels and e-newsletters; promotion at ArtStarts’ annual Showcase and Conference; opportunities to be featured on the ArtStarts blog; notification of job opportunities; discounts on ArtStarts professional development workshops and more.

What is the Application Process?

The application process will help us ensure that the artists listed in the directory are skilled, qualified and available to deliver dynamic, arts integrated projects in schools. A committee made up of educators and artists will review all applications to determine artist suitability.

How Much Does it Cost?

In order to manage the directory and provide quality service to listed artists, we charge an annual fee of $50. You will also be asked to pay a one-time application fee of $25 at the time of application.

The deadline to apply is July 19, 2013.
