ArtStarts Showcase

The 2011 Showcase will take place February 23, 24, 25 at The Cultch in Vancouver.

The ArtStarts Showcase is a 3-day performing arts showcase and conference for arts programmers interested in booking performances for young audiences. The Showcase takes place every year in Vancouver.

Over three days, more than 40 artists and groups from across Canada, working in a variety of disciplines and cultural traditions, perform sample presentations of their current touring shows.  A question period follows each presentation, and delegates have opportunities to talk with artists informally at breaks and receptions.

Who Attends

Showcase delegates include BC School District arts contacts, school representatives, and community arts programmers, all of whom book touring performers into schools and theatres in their communities.
