Grant Opportunities - DEADLINE :  



ArtsCONNECT supports touring projects collaboratively developed by presenters working together in the mid-Atlantic region. The tours include performances as well as complementary engagement activities designed to create greater understanding or connections between artists, audiences, and communities. Presenters must be based in Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Virginia, West Virginia, and the Native nations that share this geography. Active participation for presenters of all sizes is encouraged.

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. Acknowledging that collaborative planning during an ongoing global pandemic is challenging for presenters and artists alike, the FY23 ArtsCONNECT program will reduce the number of required presenters to a minimum of two (previously a minimum of three was required).

ArtsCONNECT projects are supported in two funding tiers: Projects with artist fees at or below $8,000 and projects with artist fees of $8,001 or above.

Presenter participation in the Projects in Development listing is required.  A presenter must submit an artist’s information to the listing by Tuesday, May 24, 2022Cohort applications proposing artists that have not been submitted to the listing by Tuesday, May 24, 2022 will not be eligible for ArtsCONNECT funding.
