Presenter Assistance

South Arts Resources

Grants >>
Launchpad, a program designed to provide a year-long support system to professionals who are new to the performing arts presenting field in our nine-state region, will be entering its second year. This new program offers professional development, mentorship, and a travel subsidy for participation at the 2017 Performing Arts Exchange in Atlanta, GA. In addition, there is an opportunity to receive funding to join your statewide presenters’ network and to support artist fees for presenting one of our 2017 showcase artists.

The Traditional Arts Touring Grant is in its pilot year and is designed to assist communities in bringing in a traditional artist along with a scholar or folklorist for a multi-day residency.

There are also year-round presenter assistance grants to travel to see work, attend a significant professional development opportunity, or host an artistic director planning visit.  Grants for regional touring for performing arts, literary arts projects, and special initiatives may be available.
