About Contact East

Each year, Contact East brings together the very best of North American talent, in music, theatre and dance, to showcase and pitch their work to regional, national and international presenters.

Contact East is a meeting place for artists and presenters to facilitate numerous and diverse performing arts activities in Canada and on international stages. It involves formal showcase events, primarily music, dance and theatre; the Contact Room where artists, agents and presenters can interact to discuss availability, venues and other performing arts issues; and a variety of workshops, clinics and round table discussions, which are relevant to the industry's affairs.

Contact East is an opportunity for those who present live entertainment to get together and discuss their particular ideas and concerns. Contact East provides an unprecedented opportunity to network with, and to learn from, some of the best presenters in the business from the Atlantic Provinces, across Canada, and internationally. It will also be a great weekend for all lovers of theatre, music, and dance, with over 25 artists showcasing their talents.

Submissions for artists who wish to showcase or pitch at Contact East open annually in February.
