Thank you for attending Showcase 2019!
The ArtStarts Showcase is an inspiring event for school and community arts programmers interested in booking artistic performances for young audiences.
From dancers and storytellers to musicians and theatre groups, the range of performing artists presented at the ArtStarts Showcase always proves to be diverse, engaging and relevant.
We look forward to presenting a new line-up of dynamic performers for you next year!

We were committed to providing students with accessible arts-based experiences in their schools and consider an intentional representation of equity groups an important part of this commitment.
65% of the artists are brand new to ArtStarts and the remaining 35% are showcasing a new show.
We believe the artists in this past year’s Showcase were reflected through this mandate and believe that you will be inspired by their multifaceted performances.
