About the Conference

Black Violin performs at the 2010 Midwest Arts Conference Now in its 24th year, the Conference is attended by nearly 1,000 performing artists, managers, and agents; performing arts presenters/venues; and arts administrators from throughout the United States and beyond. We come together for an educational and motivational four days focused on promoting and presenting live touring performing arts and to share our passion for using creativity to inspire and engage communities.

  • Our Conference invites you to build relationships; network with presenters, agents, artists, and managers; and strengthen your day-to-day work of connecting audiences to creative arts experiences.
  • The high-energy Marketplace exhibit hall — where the business of booking happens — gives you access to some of the best performing artists in the nation. Much of what Midwest audiences will see on stages in the 2012-2013 performing arts season will be discussed in this year’s Marketplace.
  • See and be seen at a wide variety of live performances — promote your or your artists’ work and discover new connections that are perfect for your audience or community.
  • Enrich your knowledge at our professional development sessions, which offer innovative ideas, leadership development, and skill-building opportunities for all attendees — whether you’re interested in the details of the industry or in big-picture questions about our evolving performing arts field.

The Conference is managed by Arts Midwest and serves the 15 states represented by Arts Midwest and Mid-America Arts Alliance. The Midwest Arts Conference is proud to participate in the Network of Regional Performing Arts Conferences.
