2018/2019 Price List Submission

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU READ THIS BEFORE COMPLETING THE OSAC PRICE LIST

All fields marked with an asterisk(*) are mandatory.

**2018/2019 Price List Submission deadline is September 11, 2017!**

OSAC operates in small communities throughout Saskatchewan and the performances in each location are reliant on volunteers, who may spend the day teaching school, working in a local store, farming or doing other volunteer work. As such, OSAC acts as the liaison between the agent or artist and the local arts council and all of the negotiating, contracting and routing will come through the OSAC Performing Arts Coordinator office.
OSAC strongly suggests that the price you submit include all possible costs as a way to ease the work load on the volunteer base – finding mics, strings, pics, sticks or a PA in a town of 1000 people can prove tricky. Although we understand it can be difficult to budget 18 months out, it is important the price you submit is one our volunteers can rely on as they are also budgeting using long timelines.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when putting your price together:

Fuel:
Budget for 1 tank per day. OSAC strives to keep drives to 3 hours or less.

Meals:
Budget $20.00 - $30.00 per person per day.
Many of the Arts Councils will invite artists to a reception afterwards or even provide a meal but not all have the ability to do so. The small town Prairie hospitality is legendary for a reason and you will not go hungry, but a meal in the local café will not break the bank.

Hotels:
Double rooms are seldom more than $130.00 a night. OSAC will send touring artists an accommodation guide to help you find decent places to stay. There are also a number of B&B’s throughout the province if you prefer. As you may have heard, the Saskatchewan economy is among the hottest in Canada. Make the reservations early.

Production:
As mentioned earlier, these are small communities, presenting in venues with limited technical capabilities. Renting gear is difficult and often intimidating for the local volunteers who are arts supporters not techs. The venues range in size from 200 – 600 (there are some on either side size wise) and OSAC advises that you contact a local sound company to get the cost of what you need. These are all “concert settings” where too much volume is usually more of an issue than not enough! If you are not sure what to budget for sound system costs, OSAC has on file sound system price lists from GV Audio for systems suitable for OSAC venues. If you are interested in seeing this pricing please contact Skip Taylor the Performing Arts Coordinator. You will also need to decide if you can run the sound from the stage or if you will need to bring someone with you as a sound person.

OSAC finders fee:
OSAC charges performers a 5% finder’s fee to a maximum of $150 + GST/show. Performers residing in SK are exempt.

Does following these guidelines guarantee an OSAC tour? NO! However an all inclusive price is one of the most important criteria that the Arts Council consider when selecting the upcoming season so it is something we strongly recommend.

You can also view a SAMPLE LISTING to help you understand the format of the price list and how the information will be displayed.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me and OSAC looks forward to helping you tour Saskatchewan.

Best Regards,

Skip Taylor
