These are external resources for networking in the arts community. It includes
registries, directories and rosters on state and local levels with information on
eligibility and services. This is a growing list; more registry opportunities throughout
the South will be listed as they become available. For nation-wide registries and a
number of other resources look to the navigation column to the right.
This reference is primarily for free opportunities. However, dozens of national, regional,
and local artist guilds and associations also exist that can aid in networking and
development for a relatively small membership fee.

Southeastern State Commissions
Rosters facilitated by state commissions are often competitive, requiring applications,
including proof of residence, work history, art samples and interviews. These
adjudicated rosters put you at the forefront for public commissions, teaching artist
roles and partnerships with statewide presenters. Some commissions have multiple
registries for performance and teaching artists.
Local arts organizations, particularly county and city art councils, often provide their own area artists rosters. Some require similar application materials to the State Commission rosters, while others have no application, just a registration process. Most require you to live in or near the area they serve.
