Announcing the 2018 Spotlight Showcases


A sponsored showcase by The Moxie Strings will kick off two nights of Spotlight Showcases.

Arts Midwest is pleased to announce the selected Spotlight Showcase artists and ensembles for the 2018 Arts Midwest Conference in Indianapolis!

Spotlight Showcases provide artists and ensembles with a forum for presenting work to a large, diverse audience in a professional setting, and offer attendees the opportunity to experience a wide range of performances. Arts Midwest strives to present high-quality artists selected from a pool of national and international applicants representing dance, music, theater, variety, and family programming, ranging from large ensembles to solo artists. An integral part of the Conference, the panel-selected artists/ensembles each present a 15-minute performance and gain main stage exposure to potential presenters and audiences.

Both nights of showcases will take place at the Indiana Repertory Theatre. Register for the Conference to attend!
