Request a Grant Writer

Grants for the promotion of public access to live performing arts. The overall goal of the foundation is to bring the most talented artists to populations with minimal exposure to the arts. The fund is offering up to $10,000 per presenting partner for a traveling tour that brings live performances as well as engaging activities to under-served communities in the Mid-Atlantic region. For the purposes of this program, an underserved community is one in which individuals lack access to the arts due to geography, economic conditions, ethnic background, disability, or age. Organizations must use professional artists only. See RFP for details.

GrantWatch ID#: 124497

Term of Contract:

Up to 1 year


Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Only presenter consortia are eligible to apply. For the purposes of this program, the Foundation defines a presenter as an organization that selects and engages professional touring artists to perform work before audiences in their communities as an ongoing and significant component of their organization’s activity.
Consortia must include at least three presenters from a minimum of two states.

If an ArtsCONNECT project includes the tour of an artist on the Pennsylvania Performing Arts on Tour (“PennPAT”)
program artist roster, certain funding restrictions will apply.

Pre-Application Information:

Due to the complexity involved in building an eligible consortium, the Foundation distributes ArtsCONNECT Projects in Development, a publication featuring information on potential ArtsCONNECT projects gathered from presenters in December and January, prior to the application deadline to facilitate presenter communication and partnerships.

Applications will not be accepted via internet or fax. Mail to:
Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation
201 North Charles Street, Suite 401
