Buskers are that rare breed of street entertainer in search of the best place or "pitch" to perform their artistic endeavor. Buskers can be any type of performer: dancers, mimes, artists, clowns, magicians, musicians, puppeteers, jugglers, acrobats, tumblers, living statues, and just plain weird! They can be amateurs or professionals . . .
Busking is NOT against the law in Janesville: however it isn't legal to accept financial reimbursement for street performance unless you are part of a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
The United Arts Alliance
is currently looking for performers and artists of every artistic discipline. While a member under the UAA "umbrella", you will be able to accept financial, free-will donations at the site of your performance. UAA will provide you with flexible dates and locations in downtown Janesville, provide you with proper identification as a UAA busker, and work to help promote and publicize your performance . You can use this opportunity to hone your performance skills, build a local audience, and earn some money!
To apply, please go to the UAA website at www.rockcountyarts.com where you'll find an application. If you are unable to use this application, please request a print copy using the contact option at the bottom of the site or by calling 608.752.9248 and we'll get one to you right away.
