Each presenter may request up to 50% of the negotiated artist fee for the engagement, but not to exceed $10,000.
Consortium projects will be reviewed in three tiers:
- Tier 1: consortia with a majority of presenters proposing negotiated artist fees of $5,000 or below
- Tier 2: consortia with a majority of presenters proposing negotiated artist fees between $5,001 and $15,000
- Tier 3: consortia with a majority of presenters proposing negotiated artist fees of $15,001 or above
In the case where a consortium consists of an equal amount of presenters falling under different tiers, the consortium will be placed in the tier of the highest fee range in those options. MAAF will make the final decision for the placement of a project’s funding tier.
All eligible activities must take place between July 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021
