Georgia Presenters

Georgia Presenters, a statewide booking consortium, provides a vehicle for collective programming where presenters, theatres, and communities can work together to increase cultural opportunities in their own communities and statewide.

Georgia Presenters was established in 2008 as a result of the hard work and dedication of Georgia's presenting organizations, governmental agencies, private groups and devoted individuals who recognized the potential impact of collaboration among presenters. The Fox Theatre Institute is proud to serve as the managing body for Georgia Presenters, providing communication and administrative assistance to support the organization. 

Georgia Presents Showcase - September 12, 13, & 14

The Fox Theatre Institute, in partnership with RiverCenter for the Performing Arts, VisitColumbusGA, and Georgia Council for the Arts will be hosting GEORGIA PRESENTS at the RiverCenter for the Performing Arts in Columbus on September 12, 13, and 14, 2022. Registration opens for GA, AL, FL, KY, MS, NC, SC, and TN Presenters on July 2022.

About The Georgia Presents Showcase

This September, the Georgia Presenters will offer our membership and colleagues in surrounding states the opportunity to attend a series of showcases highlighting regional talent, to participate in professional development, and to conduct business with regional agents in an exhibition hall setting. We anticipate that the showcases will be best suited for small ensembles and individual performers most likely to be of interest to Georgia presenters and presenters of similar profiles in the surrounding states. It is our intent that the showcasing artists reside in the state of Georgia or within a reasonable driving distance to Columbus, GA. As this is the first year of this event, it is important that the expectations of agents, artists, and presenters be appropriately managed. There is no guarantee that an artist will be selected, nor will there be any financial compensation for showcasing. However, artists chosen to showcase will need to be registered or have their agent/manager registered for the conference. Just as you received a Save the Date notification, you will also receive a notice when showcase consideration begins along with detailed information on how to apply. Thank you for your interest in supporting the inaugural Georgia Presents conference.
