Southern Fast Track Touring Grants
Southern Fast Track Touring grants offer smaller presenting organizations (with operating budgets under $150,000) in South Arts’ nine-state region fee support to present performing artists and writers from outside the state. Theatre, music, opera, musical theatre, literary and dance projects that contain both a public performance or reading and an educational component are eligible. The maximum request is 50% of the artist fee, up to $2,500. Projects must take place between July 1, 2014 and June 30, 2015. Applications must be submitted online at least 60 days prior to the project start date. Grants are awarded on a first come/first served basis until funding is depleted. Early submission is encouraged. New applicants are encouraged to contact SouthArts prior to applying.
