Southarts Touring Grants Webinar on December 7, 11 to 12 EST.

The Southarts Regional Touring program is an opportunity for presenting arts organizations in South Arts’ nine-state region to receive fee support to present performing artists from outside of the presenter’s state.

Southarts Block-Booked Tour grants allow Regional Touring applicants to submit an additional application if a block-booked tour includes a minimum of three presenters from at least two states in the region.

Arts Midwest Touring Fund grants are made directly to presenting organizations in Arts Midwest’s nine-state region of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. Funded engagements must feature a public performance and community engagement activity, reach an underserved audience, and foster exchange between professional touring artists and Midwest communities.
