The Field, a nonprofit arts org in New York, has recently launched a new website: www.gotour.org, that is designed for independent performing artists to reserach and post information about the arts and touring in the US.

It's a free searchable database designed to help independent performing artists, arts administrators, and audiences nationwide to research and design tours. It contains:

-Listings of artist-recommended local venues, ranging from coffee houses to formal theaters, searchable by region, discipline, and seating capacity.

-Articles by artists and arts administrators on their hometown communities, places they have toured, and how they have managed their careers, plus advice from professionals on topics ranging from legal issues to the pros and cons of touring.

-Local resources recommended by artists and administrators in the community, including support services, publicity resources, teaching opportunities, and places to socialize with other artists.

-Classified listings to facilitate locating artistic collaborators, production assistance, services, goods, and other resources.

-A bulletin board for focused, issue-oriented discussions where participants share resources, brainstorm, and address issues affecting the performing arts community.

and, artists can add these kinds of resources onto the site as well.

Pass it on!

Thanks for the info. That's a really useful site. (I edited your post a little to make the website address linkable).

I tried to add our arts center as a venue, but couldn't because the form seems not to be aware that there is a town in Connecticut called Greenwich.

Strange.

A Web Site Helps Indie Artists Along a Hard Road
by ERIKA KINETZ for the New York Times

Few artists move up the food chain, and many who do spend a significant chunk of time in the scrappy zone of do-it-yourself performance. And as money and audiences have dwindled, fewer artists are being picked up by agents and presenters and many have had to retool themselves, not just as visionaries, but also as entrepreneurs. GoTour is designed to help them take charge of their careers, instead of waiting for approval - and money - to come to them from on high.
