In addition to hosting and attending shows, you can get involved by creating a Presenter profile or sign up as a Service Provider.
A Presenter can be an organization, person, or festival that works with artists to amplify the reach of the show and collaborate on the booking and presentation of a Side Door show. Any user account can create a free Presenter profile to book a self-promoted online show or a collaborative show with an Artist profile. A Presenter is a great partner for an online show and is distinct from a Host since they do not necessarily have a physical space.
Service Providers have unique offerings for Artists, Hosts, and the performance industry as a whole. Service Providers are videographers, photographers, audio engineers, marketing and promotions specialists, merchandise vendors, moderators, lighting technicians, and any other service that contributes to the performance arts industry. Sign ups are private and only visible to Side Door staff (for now). When artists inquire about finding services for upcoming Side Door shows, staff will make recommendations using your contact information! Services can be listed as either volunteer or paid and can be registered HERE.
To host a show, we believe that any motivated person with a space can be a Host. A space is any area that can fit 20 guests or more including but not limited to your private home, private business, community space, public business, and/or workplace! Perhaps you have a friend, family member, or neighbour who would be an amazing Host, in which case please tell them about us.
