Deadline: April 15, 2008
The Manitoba Arts Network represents community arts organizations in rural and northern Manitoba. Our Performing Arts Touring Program assists both presenters and artists/managers to coordinate block-booked tours and one-time performances in community venues throughout Manitoba.
We will be presenting live showcases of performers interested in touring rural and northern Manitoba, at our 2008 Manitoba Showcase in Portage la Prairie, on October 18th, 2007. Representatives of community arts organizations attend this event for the purposes of networking, professional development and selecting performers for their 2009/2010 season.
The showcase performances will take place on a full set stage on Saturday, October 18; there will be display space in the Contact room following each showcase set and scheduled times are available to meet community presenters on a one on one basis.
The fee for applying is $35 and as a BONUS, applicants will be placed into our 2008/09 Performance Touring Directory, FREE of any additional charges. The current 07/08 directory can be viewed online at: www.communityarts.mb.ca.
An application form is attached and can also be found on our website at www.communityarts.mb.ca, I can be reached either by phone or by email should you have any questions.
