Request a Grant Writer

Grants to nonprofit and governmental arts presenting organizations to host performing artists in eligible states for public events. Eligible states include Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

The Performing Arts Touring program is an opportunity for presenting arts organizations in South Arts’ nine-state region to receive fee support to present Southern performing artists from outside of the presenter’s state. Touring support is awarded to theater, music, opera, musical theater, and dance projects that contain both a public performance and an educational component.

The project must include both a public performance and an educational/outreach component.  Performances at conferences and school-focused performances (primarily engaging students, whether taking place at the school, or a performance venue) will not be considered public performances that are open and accessible to the general public; however, school-focused performances will satisfy the educational component requirement. For the public performance, a  minimum of 60 minutes of performance by the artist/full company is required.

Events must be open and marketed to the public and dedicated to serving a wide audience. Projects are not required to serve the entire geographic community but should have targeted participants.

All grant recipients are required to provide accessibility for constituents with disabilities at grant-funded events. For the purpose of these guidelines, accessibility relates to your overall facility and project being accessible to all. In addition to physical access (ramps, accessible parking/box office/restrooms/seating, etc.), communications and programmatic accessibility is not only required but can help your organization build audiences and strengthen engagement.
