ArtsCONNECT supports touring projects developed by presenter consortia based in the region that includes public performances and community engagement activities. Presenters must be located in DC, DE, MD, NJ, NY, PA, VA, USVI or WV.
The program recognizes that offering funding support for a variety of well-coordinated, collective booking efforts increases routing opportunities, leverages access for smaller markets, and benefits the region as a whole. To that end, ArtsCONNECT facilitates an open process of sharing touring project ideas amongst presenters and encourages active participation for presenters of all sizes.
ArtsCONNECT projects are supported in three funding tiers: Projects with artist fees of $5,000 or below; Projects with artist fees between $5,001 and $15,000; And projects with artist fees of $15,001 or above.
