Join us at the ArtStarts Showcase and Conference 2013! Registration is Now Open

Join us at the ArtStarts Showcase and Conference 2013!

Educators and community presenters interested in booking performances for young audiences are invited to join us at the ArtStarts Showcase and Conference on February 27, 28 and March 1, 2013.

This year features another full day of exciting new programming to help young audiences get the most out of performances and workshops, including sessions on how to inspire learning before, during and after artist visits, and how to embrace the power of documentation as part of the creative process.

As always, at the ArtStarts Showcase and Conference you'll discover over 30 of the finest performing artists through sample presentations of their touring shows, including many artists and shows brand new to the ArtStarts Touring Artist Directory. Performances from English, bilingual, Francophone and First Nations performers represent an outstanding mix of disciplines and cultural traditions, from world music and contemporary dance to storytelling, theatre and much more.

Other highlights to look forward to include:

  • An inspiring keynote address from artist and educator Dr. Robert Kelly: "Design Thinking: The Accessible Lens for Creative Practice."
  • Catered lunch and coffee break refreshments.
  • Guided tours of the ArtStarts Gallery for young people's art.
  • Networking with arts programming peers.
  • Artists Directory listing approximately 100 performing and workshopping artists now on tour and available for booking.

It's all happening February 27, 28 and March 1, 2013, in downtown Vancouver at ArtStarts and the Orpheum Annex.

Get inspired by watching some of the highlights from last year's event!
