Artist Directory Module

The Best Community Engagement Platform for Arts, Culture, and Tourism.

Showcase the People who make up your Community

How Does it work?

This individual focused directory is visually powerful and easy to manage. This module is interconnected with the Event Calendar and Public Art modules, linking artists to their work and raising their visibility. Profiles offer include background description, contact, work samples, CV, media (unlimited images, videos and sound samples), residency information, and any number of additional fields that you can define.

List all the people working in your local creative economy or select individuals based on membership status or artistic quality.

Artists can manage their own information from the ‘front end’ user dashboard, while administrators can review, approve and edit those same profiles via the administrative control panel. All submissions require initial approval by the website’s content administrator, though subsequent edits by the artist can be set to bypass the administrative review process. If the bypass option is activated then all listing edits will appear on the website immediately.

An unlimited number of searchable categories (and sub-categories) can be added, covering artistic discipline, style, medium and other types of your choosing.

Let us show you how we can help you serve your community.


These are some of our most frequently asked questions, but if you have others, please reach out to us.

What degree of customization is possible?

All of our sites include basic customization to align with your brand identity. This includes things like logo placement, color palette choice, footer design, globalized font selection within our standard list, etc.


Our team is capable of providing higher degrees of customization, both functionally and in regards to design elements. The degree of specificity determines the cost of our customization services.


If you would like a higher degree of customization beyond our standard inclusions, we will estimate the number of hours it will take to accomplish your goals, and include a pre-determined number of customization hours in our quote.

How much does the platform cost to use?

Our pricing takes into consideration three factors:


  • Service Area

The population you serve affects the amount a of traffic a site will receive. We have found that Network Members who serve 50,000 people function differently than those who are serving, for example, 3 million people. The sites have different demands placed on them, and we have to price our services accordingly.


  • Data Normalization and Data Mining

When building a site, the work required to 'normalize' any import data to work within our platform is always different. Some data is incomplete and may require data 'mining' to make listings appear complete, within our system. Each project is considered on a case by case basis and priced accordingly.


  • Startup Cost

Your start up cost will be dependent on the modules you select and the labour required to achieve your goals. We will work with you to find the right fit of services that works within your budget. We are committed to providing our tools to those who serve the well being of their community. Reach out to discuss our many flexible options with you.

Our start-up period, which includes site construction, standard customization, and staff training, spans a 15 month period, on average. Once your site is launched, your annual maintenance fee will be due exactly 12 months from that date.


Please request a meeting with us so we can better understand your needs, after which we will provide an accurate quote.

What is you payment policy?

Upon contract signing, ARTSOPOLIS requires a payment of 50% of the estimated total project cost. The remaining 50% will be due once the site is launched.

We do offer the option for 4 installment payments, once the request is reviewed and approved.

The annual maintenance fee is a lump sum, due every 12 months from the date of the site launch.

Can we request platform functionality customizations?

Platform customizations and enhancements can be requested. All system enhancements are performed by Artsopolis development staff - we do not allow outside developers to alter the functionality of the platform. Functionality customization requests often come after the development process is completed. We consider these requests custom development projects, which are all considered on a case by case basis. If approved, any enhancements may be arranged at $95* per development hour. We are happy to provide a quote upon request, but we do require a discovery meeting so we may understand the scope of work. 


*Hourly rate subject to change without prior notification.
