All those interested in dance, visual, performing arts, theatre, film, music and other areas of the arts will attend this networking-educational collaboration with the mission to help artists seeking professional advice and programs for their crafts.

Modeled after Expo Chicago, the fair is the collaboration of seven local arts service organizations, and it will educate attendees in professional development opportunities, including arts funding, housing, arts marketing, audience development and growth, health insurance/services, and business resources. The Houston Arts Resource Fair will feature national industry experts from Fractured Atlas, Alvin Ailey Dance Company and Houston Endowment, along with other innovators in the fields of fundraising, marketing and healthcare.
