Independent Showcases are performances produced by artists, agents and managers in the conference hotel, convention center or in local venues after-hours. These performances are not produced or managed by South Arts PAE. Affectionately known as “Indies”, these showcase encompass an enormous range of genres and talent and round out the PAE conference experience with full evenings of art and fun!
Space: PAE leases space for showcasing in official PAE facilities, but note that we encourage new attendees to showcase for a few years with other agents or artists who are familiar with the process before undertaking the considerable expense and effort to produce showcases. Any artist considering leasing space must fill out a form and discuss needs with South Arts staff in Feb/Mar. While we try to accommodate all who wish to showcase, there is typically more demand than supply.
Indie Showcasing Leasing Info Sheet is no longer available. Check back Feb of 2017.
Interest in Leasing Space for Indies form is now closed. Check back March of 2017.
Listings: Agents, managers, and artists who have purchased a booth and registered for the conference may list their Independent Showcases in the PAE program book, website and mobile app. Showcases must take place during sanctioned hours to be listed in conference materials. Listings are $75 for a single artist or $125 for multiple artists in one showcase.
