Olson VT Artists Fund

Artists interpret the world, create connection, and inspire our day-to-day.  For performing artists who come from or are based in Vermont, The Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center has a fierce commitment to support and nurture your talent.  To ensure that your passion, creativity, and voice are given a home in your own backyard, on a world-class stage.  In 2017, the Olson VT Artists Fund was established to ensure the history of presenting VT artists would continue long into the future.

If you are a Vermont born or based artist interested in performing at the Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center there are 3 ways to do so!


If you have a history of selling large venues and want to perform in your own backyard, on a world class stage, reach out with a routing proposal and sample of your marketing materials, today!  Contact Hope Sullivan hsullivan@sprucepeakarts.org to book your performance, or rental.


If you’re an emerging talent that has experience playing in and beyond VT and you are ready to take a career enhancing leap onto the stage at Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center we offer a co-producer contract where collaboration and building audience are a team activity. 

The Incubator Series is also appropriate for young performing arts companies (less than 10 years old) who would like to offer both an educational workshop along with a performance (e.g. theatre, circus, dance etc.).

“The experience basically transformed my career. The opportunity to perform in this kind of venue and the support I received were absolutely transformative. Spruce Peak Arts is a real talent incubator, I’m incredibly grateful for the chance they took on me and the impact it has had on my career.”  
-Audrey Bernstein (audreybernsteinjazz.com)
