FRANKFORT (AP) - The Kentucky Arts Council is looking for performing artists to be included in an online directory.
According to the council, presenters use the directory to identify artists for performance bookings and other projects.
Arts council Executive Director Lori Meadows says those included in the directory also will receive opportunities for business training and marketing assistance to help with their professional careers.
Individual, company or group performers in dance, theater, music and storytelling are eligible to apply for inclusion. The deadline is Feb. 15.
A panel of independent industry professionals will select who is to be included based on artistic excellence, performance experience and marketing capacity.
More information is available at artscouncil.ky.gov under the "opportunities" tab.
