Jazz Touring Network


The Jazz Touring Network (JTN) is a presenter-based membership program that supports professional development, building partnerships, and working together to curate tours that reflect the richness of the field of jazz.

Welcoming both those organizations with little to no experience presenting jazz and seasoned jazz presenters seeking to strengthen programming, application occurs annually through an open, competitive process. Once selected, membership is ongoing upon meeting annual requirements.

JTN expands the presentation of jazz throughout the mid-Atlantic region while ensuring regional programming reflects the vibrancy and diversity of the current field of jazz. Members take part in professional development activities and work together to block-book a series of jazz tours each year.

Grant support range:  

  • Professional Development: Travel grant covering many expenses related to attendance at the Annual JTN Meeting
  • Tours: Performance grants up to $3,000 not to exceed 50% of the fee for any given engagement


This is an annual opportunity. Funding Period: July 1, 2024-June 30, 2025. Apply via the Application Portal by September 7, 2023.
