The Ohio Arts Professionals Network (OAPN) hosts a regional conference in Toledo next September and is looking for performing artists to present their acts on stage at the Valentine Theatre.
OAPN is an organization aimed at supporting and developing the state’s traveling arts community. The 2022 Regional Conference, taking place September 12-14, is a networking event aimed at bringing artists and agents together.
Part of this process includes juried showcases, which are held at the historic Valentine Theater in Toledo. The showcase will see 24 jury-selected performing artists from a wide variety of genres – theatre, comedy, magic, dance and more – showing their acts in a series of 15-minute sets.
All artists interested in participating in the Jury Showcases are encouraged to apply to I want to highlight. The artists chosen by the OAPN jury will have the chance to perform at the conference. All applications must be submitted by May 1, 2022 at 11:55 p.m.
In addition to performances at the Valentine, networking, dining, and a full exhibit hall will be held at the newly renovated Glass City Center (formerly the Seagate Center), with a closing party at the Toledo Museum of Art Glass Pavilion.
