Grants of up to $3,000 to Michigan nonprofit organizations, schools, and municipalities to host presentations by qualifying touring artists. Funding may be requested by organizations seeking to offer arts and cultural events to the public. Funding will defray fees and expenses of eligible touring artists, performers, exhibitors, and humanities presenters.
Arts and Humanities Touring Program:
The Arts and Humanities Touring Directory features some of the state’s most-talented performing and visual artists, and humanities presenters. The directory offers artists and humanities professionals the opportunity to present their work throughout the state through work with nonprofit recipients of the Touring grants program. Partnered with the Arts and Humanities Touring Grant Program, it is a one-stop resource for many organizations looking to hold public arts and culture events. The artists and humanities professionals included in the Directory go through a formal peer-review adjudication process.
Arts and Humanities Touring Grants:
The Arts and Humanities Touring Program is a joint collaboration of the Michigan Humanities Council and the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs. Michigan nonprofits can apply for Touring Grants to host arts and humanities programming that feature artists and presenters listed in the Arts and Humanities Touring Directory.
Each year the Touring Program awards hundreds of grants to schools and community organizations throughout Michigan to help underwrite the cost of bringing live performances/presenters and exhibits to classrooms, libraries and cultural events.
