The CREATIVE ARTIST DATABASE is a complete listing of all creative artists and creative organizations. There’s absolutely no cost to create your listing and be found in searches.
EVERY CREATIVE ARTIST (both performers and non-performing) should be listed in the database in order to appear in job-matching searches for creative projects that match your skills.
EVERY SERVICE PROVIDER for creative projects should have a listing in order for creative artists to find the support and services they need.
EVERY ARTS ORGANIZATION should be represented in the database in order to find the most qualified candidates from all communities and to ensure their diversity and inclusion mission is made clear to the public.
FANS/ART SUPPORTERS should join in order to subscribe and support their favorite artists, giving them exclusive access to the artist and participate in supporting them in their artistic endeavors.
It’s simple. Users set up a profile to get listed in the all-inclusive CREATIVE ARTIST DATABASE, a complete listing of all roles involved in creative projects.
Post for free about your project and allow users to apply to your project. Search for projects that match your interests. Or search for creative individuals or collaborators using the database.
