FRANKFORT, Ky. (Dec. 20, 2016) — The deadline to apply to participate in the Kentucky Arts Council’s Performing Artists Directory is Feb. 15, 2017.
The directory is a marketing assistance program that supports Kentucky performers of music, dance, theater and storytelling. It is an adjudicated online roster of performing artists used by in-state and out-of-state presenters and others as a resource for identifying artists for performance bookings and projects.
There are currently more than 80 individual artists and groups listed in the directory. Applicants are adjudicated by a panel of independent industry professionals. Applications are assessed based on artistic excellence, performance experience and marketing capacity.
To assist in the application process, the arts council will host webinars 2 p.m., Jan. 10 and 5 p.m., Jan. 30, Eastern time, to discuss the application process and answer questions from prospective applicants. Interested parties, or those who have questions or need more information, should contact Tamara Coffey, individual artist director, at 502-892-3121 or [email protected].
