ArtStarts provides students equitable access to artistic experiences that are relevant, representative, and integrated into their learning. The Artists on Tour Directory features over 90 performing artists available to tour in BC, representing a wide range of disciplines and cultural backgrounds. We facilitate this process through a convenient booking service for schools across the province. Our Booking and Touring team is here to assist you!
Browse the full directory of artists below—or search by name, artistic discipline or speciality. If you've already booked an artist, use this directory to access information about their performance.
Performance and workshop listings for the 2020/21 school year are now available to view and book! With the uncertainty around the 2020/21 school year, we don't yet know when or if artists on the AOTD will be able to tour again.
In response to COVID-19, many Artists in our directory have adapted their work to gathering limitations and health restrictions, including socially distant workshops, smaller performance sizes, and limiting travel to within the region the Artist is based.
Please note we are only able to book artists from the COVID Conscious Directory at this time. If you are interested in booking, please reach out to the Booking and Touring team directly via email.
