Alberta Showcase 2020 | Artist Applications Open

Date: Jan 31, 2020

Deadline: Apr 1, 2020 - 11:45 pm

Now in its 43rd year, Alberta Showcase brings touring artists together with community arts presenters searching for performance artists for special events, concert and performance series, and community celebrations. It is three days of showcasing the top performance artists interested in touring Alberta, that will inspire you!

Every October the Arts Touring Alliance of Alberta brings together arts presenters from across Alberta who are searching for performing artists who will tour in their communities. Many of the soft-seat presenters offer subscription series. Some are simply cafes with one-off concerts and events. They are looking for a diverse, challenging line-up of artists with broad audience appeal. Alberta Showcase 2020 will take place October 22-25 at the Shell Theatre in the Dow Centennial Centre in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta (just 30 minutes north of Edmonton).

The primary purpose of Alberta Showcase is live performance and building connections between performance artists and arts presenters. All applications are reviewed by a jury of presenters, performers, and promoters, and the top applicants are selected to showcase over the weekend.

Who Should Apply:

Performance artists looking to book touring dates in Alberta. 

How to Apply:

Artist Applications are processed through the I Want to Showcase website.

I Want to Showcase is a collaboration between partner performing arts conferences whose goal is simple: to offer performing artists a showcase application site that’s easy to navigate, understand and use:
