DID YOU KNOW?

Frequently, finding something is serendipitous. Too often, they give up and don’t attend at all.

(Survey of Public Participation in the Arts, National Endowment for the Arts and the U.S. Census Bureau)

"It's overwhelming digging through all this!" - Seth Parker, NY, NY

43.4 percent of U.S. adults or 106.8 million people attended at least one performing arts event last year.

Our independent research found that arts attendees, passionate for live events, spend hours searching online, standing in discount ticket queues, and traveling out of their way, for a meaningful arts experience.


We uncovered nearly 50 apps, sites and other media that come into play seeking out relevant events.

Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of Living Artist Society. By adding your name to our waiting list you are raising your hand to show support for this project and believe in its mission to bring live arts to a wider audience while helping artists build sustainable livings.

OPEN CALL COMING SUMMER 2019

I caught the “bug” for the arts early on, studying both piano and ballet from the age of five. Despite the constant warnings that “you can’t make a living in the arts” I pursued it anyway. I followed the musical path right through a BM at Manhattan School of Music and graduate studies at Rice University. Accompanying and teaching became a gratifying way of life.


My musical life was full. My pocket-book, not so much.


Then serendipity hit. In dealing with the ‘business side’ of earning my keep, I discovered a new passion: using data and technology to solve problems. My obsession with coding culminated in a whole new career. I enjoyed several positions across a gamut of data and marketing services to a wide variety of clients.


Still, my heart was in the arts. With every new skill I acquired, I couldn’t help thinking how it could help artists overcome at least some of their practical matters of making a living. After a year of research and exploration I finally had my big “ah-ha”.


More people than I ever imagined are seeking the arts but thwarted by the discovery process, while talented artists, available in abundance, are going undiscovered. I could marry my love of the arts with my talent for data to help close this gap using the Living Artist Society online platform as our bridge. 


I hope you will join me in my quest to bring your work to an audience you have yet to reach.
