Deadline extended to apply for Arts Directory, Teaching Artist Certification

Do you remember this post on The Hub in August?

The SCAC is completely overhauling what's long been known as the Roster of Approved Artists and turning it into two new, juried lists: the Arts Directory and Teaching Artist Certification (which is much like the Arts Directory but includes a background check so you can collaborate on the classroom level). To get said certification, you must first apply for the Arts Directory.

Current roster artists will be granted courtesy extensions into the new Arts Directory for one cycle, but still must apply. These artists will not be required to submit resumes, work samples, or letters of support for this year’s application. After the one-cycle courtesy extension, ALL current roster artists will be expected to submit a full application.

We strongly recommend you get the full information by clicking the Hub link above or by going here.

All that to lead to this news: the deadline to apply for the Arts Directory or for Teaching Artist Certification is being extended to Monday, Dec. 3, 2018.

Applications being accepted for new Arts Directory

About a month ago, we let you in on a new SCAC initiative: the Roster of Approved Artists is being reinvented and turning into the new Arts Directory and Teaching Artist Certification. As of today, #SCartists may now apply to join the Arts Directory (first) and to receive (only if applicable) the Teaching Artist Certification – only after first applying to the Arts Directory. Get more information and apply here. The deadline to apply is Monday, Nov. 19. In January 2019, panels will meet to decide who gets accepted to (or for) each. Artists on the Roster of Approved Artists are being granted courtesy extensions into the new Arts Directory for one cycle, but still must apply. These artists will not be required to submit resumes, work samples, or letters of support for this year’s application. After the one cycle courtesy extension, ALL current roster artists will be expected to submit a full application. The current Roster of Approved Artists will be available as a PDF and an Excel document until this transition occurs. Questions? Go to this PDF for FAQ.
