Benefits of Being a Directory Artist

  • What are some of the benefits of being a Directory Artist?

    • Paid Opportunities: If you are a Directory Artist, you will be eligible to participate in ArtsPath's outreach to schools and communities through extended residencies in those schools. Through ArtsPath and matching funds, Directory Artists are paid in minimum of $195 per day. Employment cannot be guaranteed but a wide range of opportunities exist.

    • Interaction with Visiting Artists: Through The Lively Arts at IUP, ArtsPath works to develop residencies throughout the year that unite accomplished touring artists with Directory artists, teachers, and students.

    • Complimentary Tickets: All ArtsPath artists will receive two complimentary tickets for each subscription event of The Lively Arts' various series at IUP. This benefit is extended so that all regional artists are aware of the various performing arts opportunities for themselves and those involved in residency activities.

    • Networking: Through seminars, web development, mailing lists, and other avenues, you will be in regular contact with your colleagues throughout the ArtsPath region and the state.
