Our work is defined by community interests, needs and aspirations. As such, we don’t always know what art form we will be working with next! Our Artist Roster is the first place we look when we need to hire an artist for a particular project. Art Starts is dedicated to building a diverse artist roster. We are committed to teaching and working in a positive, welcoming environment and encourage applications from minorities, indigenous artists, LGBTQ+ artists, artists with disabilities and newcomer artists.
