For Artists

For over 30 years, 4Culture has managed an ever-expanding, juried roster of some of the best performing artists King County has to offer. This digital tool makes it easy for promoters, nonprofits, and event organizers to book you for their event.

Being Part of the Touring Arts Roster

Being Part of the Touring Arts Roster

Joining the Roster puts you or your group within easy reach of event organizers and audiences across King County. We even offer financial incentives to nonprofits and local arts agencies to book Roster groups!

We open the Roster for auditions twice a year—typically in Spring and Fall. Check back here or sign up for our enews for dates.

If you are eligible and would like to audition, set up and complete a 4Culture Account.

A panel made up of a combination of arts professionals, administrators, presenters and working performers will evaluate your audition. The panel will judge based on these criteria:

  • Artistic merit
  • Professionalism
  • Quality of audition presentation
  • Quality of (optional) promotional materials

If selected to join the Touring Arts Roster, you’ll be asked to provide a photo and audio and video links for your listing. 4Culture regularly promotes the Roster across all 4Culture channels, so strong media is essential.
