A Look at a Recent Event: Cultural Arts Booking Fair
Rachael had a great time attending the Cultural Arts Booking Fair on Saturday, August 10, 2019, at Wakefield High School. The Cultural Arts Booking Fair occurs annually each August, bringing together artists and community members who schedule cultural arts programming. More than 80 artists who currently are part of the United Arts Council’s Artists in Schools program participate. Participating artists have booths set up in a trade-show format, where attendees can meet artists and learn more about programs listed in the Artist Directory. Approximately 40 artists also participate in showcases held throughout the day, in which they present and perform brief excerpts of programs. Save the date for next year!
