Incorporated in 1985, the International Resource Centre For Performing Artists is a non-profit, charitable organization, whose mandate is to help freelance classical performing artists make the transition from graduation to steady employment, and to help audiences understand and support the preparation and needs of the artists they will eventually enjoy in performance. The IRCPA aims to help all performing artists in the classical music and ballet fields, to move into professional careers, with special attention to singers and dancers because of their short career spans.
The programs include Encounters with Employers (artistic directors, conductors, stage directors, coaches) for artistic direction, and Career Moves for the Business of Career Development.
