MatchBook.org Online Marketplace
MatchBook.org is a free online performing arts directory that sparks connections between New England's performing artists, presenters, and communities.
Make the Match. Book the performance!
MatchBook.org endeavors to strengthen the creative industry by more efficiently linking artists in New England with the theaters, community centers, libraries, spiritual centers, schools, festivals, museums, galleries and coffeehouses that hire them to provide cultural programming in their communities.
MatchBook.org enables artists to post and maintain their information online, with features like streaming video and audio samples. Presenters use the site to locate appropriate artists, view work samples, and contact the artists they find. Both artists and presenters have access to technical assistance such as how to document their work, find funding sources or get tips on writing a contract.
There are currently over 330 performing artists eligible for NEFA’s New England States Touring program who are included in MatchBook.org’s searchable directory. The site is also available to any New England–based performing artist who chooses to register and create a profile.
