Dear artists,

Autumn greetings! We hope your summer show circuit was profitable! With application season upon us, we’re pleased to share what we’ve been up to the past few months.

Our Best Conference Yet!
Artists and show administrators traveled from across the country to attend targeted professional development sessions and connect with others in the arts industry during the sixth annual Arts Festival Conference in Portland, Oregon. We heard many great things about the event and its ability to facilitate the exchange of ideas. Weren’t able to make it this year? Look for our release of audio from select sessions later this fall.

Thank you to everyone who helped make the conference a success! If you attended, please take five minutes to fill out this survey:

Your feedback is crucial to future planning.

WEIGH IN: Communication from Shows
With many applications opening up this fall, we’re curious to know how you would prefer to be contacted with new opportunities to apply. Click here here to answer just one question about your preferred method of contact from show administrators.

Coming Soon: Multiple Applications from one Profile
To make applying to shows even easier, we’re launching an enhancement this winter that will allow you to submit multiple applications to a show using only one profile. This means if you apply in different medium categories, you’ll soon be able to manage all of your applications in one account!
