FRANKFORT, Ky. — Applications are open for artists interested in being included in the Kentucky Arts Council’s Performing Arts Directory, the state’s adjudicated Web-based roster of Kentucky performing artists.

Professional individual artists, companies or groups in dance, theater, music and storytelling with an established performance history may apply. Applications are accepted online. The deadline to apply is March 15.

“The Performing Arts Directory is a resource for in-state and out-of-state presenters, and others who need professional talent, to find artists for performances, bookings and projects,” said Lori Meadows, arts council executive director. “Artists in the directory also can participate in various professional development and marketing opportunities presented by the arts council.”

The Performing Arts Directory promotes and showcases a diverse selection of Kentucky’s finest contemporary and traditional performing artists.

Acceptance into the directory is based on artistic excellence, performance experience and marketing capacity, as judged by an independent panel of performing arts professionals. For a complete listing of performing artists currently in the directory, visit http://artistdirectory.ky.gov/Pages/PerformingArtistDirectory.aspx.

Applicants must be at least 18 years old. Student-based performance groups must perform regularly off-campus for professional fees. Applicants must have been full-time Kentucky residents for at least six months prior to the application deadline.

For more information about the Performing Arts Directory, contact Tamara Coffey, individual artist program director, at tamara.coffey@ky.gov or 502-564-3757, ext. 479.

The Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency, creates opportunities for Kentuckians to value, participate in and benefit from the arts. Kentucky Arts Council funding is provided by the Kentucky General Assembly and the National Endowment for the Arts.
