South Arts is currently accepting Regional Touring and Block Booking grant applications. Presenters from within the organization’s nine-state region (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee) can request up to $7,500. These grants support performing arts presenting organizations for engagements by guest artists (theatre, music, opera, musical theatre and dance) from outside of the presenter’s state. The project must include publicly accessible performances and educational activities that provide opportunities for people to participate in the arts.

Regional Touring grant applications are due March 2 and Block-Booking applications are due by March 9.
