Conference Juried Showcasing & Conf Overview

Notifications for the Juried selections will be made on May 1, 2017.


The Showcases are a centerpiece of the annual Arts Northwest Booking Conference!

The Arts Northwest Juried Showcases are renowned for the commitment to quality and diversity, as well as its reputation as one of the most effective methods for artists to increase their visibility with presenters in the west.

The performing artists/ensembles are selected by a peer panel process to present a 12-minute excerpt of their work during the annual conference. These showcases are highly sought after and extremely competitive.

"We have 10 cities in Alaska and several other dates on hold in Oregon, Washington, and California!    So the showcase really made a huge difference in our bookings in the NorthWest!    Thank you for the opportunity!"
