Request a Grant Writer

Opportunity for Texas nonprofit organizations, individuals, IHEs, and businesses providing performing arts performances to be listed on a state roster of available performers. Eligible disciplines include dance, music, theater, literature, storytelling, visual arts, and film/media arts.

The Texas Commission on the Arts maintains an approved Touring Roster of Texas-based touring companies and artists. In this program, the artist or artist's management sets the fee and negotiates the booking. Applicants must have a history of touring and maintain a reasonable fee range. Roster artists are required to perform outside their community regularly. Touring artists offer single performances as well as optional services that may include workshops, master classes, lecture-demonstrations, arts education components, residencies, or short performances. The fact that an artist is approved to the roster does not imply or guarantee that the artist will receive bookings in the coming year.
