What is the Regional Online Artists Directory (ROAD)?
It is a networked peer group of the Chesapeake region's professional quality artists of all arts disciplines to display their profiles, their work and their engagements on our unique web platform. If you want to have a personal web presence on the Internet's digital highway, to help focus and strengthen your exposure, to be identified and networked with colleagues from the Chesapeake region arts community, then you should go on the ROAD with your own personal web page!
How does one use the Directory?
To read an artist’s profile, just click on a name in the Directory under whatever category you select. The personal web page of that artist will open. You will find photos, mini-galleries, video, audio, calendars, resumes, links to related sites and so on, typical of any other web pages. Looking for a particular type of artist? Go on the ROAD.
Who may join the Directory?
Most of our artists are based in the Chesapeake region within the Mid-Atlantic States. However, there is no formal geographic limitation. It is open to professional quality performers of music of all types, individuals and groups, to thespians and storytellers, to dancers en pointe and barefoot, to singers of opera to barbershop, mixed arts, performance art, writers and poets, painters and photographers, teachers and storytellers.
What is meant by “professional quality”?
The ROAD is a directory of career and part-time professionals, retired but still active former professionals, and amateurs whose work is professional in quality, comparable to the professional arena.
Put new energy into your career with a personal web page on Chesapeake International Arts - a platform where you can showcase your art and events and connect with fellow artists and the presenters that are looking for you. Take all that you have to share on the ROAD, where people can find you.
When you are on the ROAD, your personal web page will be like having a digital business card on the web, along your own artistic profile, photos, audio, video, an even calendar. You will receive:
