Deadline: February 25

SouthArts is accepting nominations for Juried Showcase panelists to review 15-minute performances by potential artists for this year’s Performing Arts Exchange conference, to help us determine which artists to feature.

The Performing Arts Exchange Juried Showcase panel is made up of nine panelists from around the U.S. with expertise in different artistic disciplines. Each panelist must have at least five years of experience and expertise in at least one of the major performance disciplines  – dance, music, theater, variety, family and children’s programming.

Panelist nominees may be artists, agents or managers, presenters or a member of a relevant service organization.

Panelists are not expected to travel. All panels are held in a webinar format via phone and computer. Panelists must be able to commit to a 1 hour online training session, approximately 4 hours pre-panel review of materials and two full days of panel reviews via webinar.

Panelists will be assigned to a panel on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, based on area of expertise. All panelists will participate in the final panel on Friday.
