South Arts introduces new presentation grant

Supporting Southern artist engagements

  • Informational Webinar: March 30, 2021 at 11 a.m. ET

Our partners South Arts are introducing a new grant today for presenting a Southern artist in a performing arts, literary arts, visual arts, or film engagement.

South Arts Presentation Grants provide up to $7,500 and replace the former Performing and Literary arts touring grants promoted regularly by The Hub. (For the legions who are regular watchers of The Hub’s post tags, we are hereby retiring those.)

The new grants are an opportunity for organizations in South Arts’ nine-state region (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee) to receive artist fee support of up to $7,500 to present Southern guest filmmakers, visual and performing artists, or writers from inside or outside of the presenter’s state. Projects must include both a public presentation (film screening, performance, reading or exhibition) and an educational component.

Because of COVID-19, eligible projects can include virtual activities by the guest artist and/or projects that engage local artists. Projects must take place between Sept. 1, 2021 and June 30, 2022.

Want to learn more? Review the guidelines and join an informational webinar Tuesday, March 30, 2021 at 11 a.m. ET. Discussion is to include the goals of the program, its guidelines and application process, and some frequently asked questions. Can’t attend? Don’t worry, the recorded webinar will be available on South Arts’ website within 48 hours.

The deadline to submit a Presentation Grants application is May 3, 2021.
