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.

What started as a brochure is now a digital tool, making it easy for promoters, nonprofits, and event organizers to find you and book you for their event.

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 February and August. Check back here or sign up for our enews to be notified when the dates are finalized. If you are eligible and would like to audition, simply fill out the Intent to Audition form at the bottom of this page, and we will contact you to schedule your time slot. A panel will evaluate your audition based on you or your group’s artistic merit and professionalism, the quality of your audition presentation, and the quality of your promotional materials.

If selected the be a part of the Touring Arts Roster, you’ll be asked to provide content for your listing—photos, video if available, descriptions, and any reviews. We regularly promote the Roster across all 4Culture channels, so strong media is essential.
