Contact East 2015 is now accepting showcase and pitch applications by tour-ready artists in music, theatre, and dance.  Applications are be accepted via I Want To Showcase, a multi-conference application system. The application deadline is Monday, March 30th, 12 p.m. AST.

The flagship event of the Atlantic Presenters Association, Contact East brings together North American talent in theatre, music, and dance, to showcase their work for regional, national, and international presenter delegates. This year’s 40th anniversary conference will take place Sept. 17–20, 2015 in Charlottetown, PEI.

Contact East is a meeting place for artists and presenters to facilitate numerous and diverse performing arts activities in Canada and on international stages. It involves formal showcase events, primarily music, dance and theatre; the Contact Room where artists, agents, and presenters can interact to discuss availability, venues, and other performing arts issues; and a variety of workshops, clinics, and round table discussions, which are relevant to the industry’s affairs.

Showcase artists will perform on the stage of APA network member Confederation Centre of the Arts at The Mack. Alumni artists of the event have gone on to touring success, including Natalie MacMaster, Matt Andersen and David Myles.
