South Arts Grant Opportunities
(for projects completed by June 30, 2018)
Grants for Traditional Arts Projects
Our Traditional Arts Touring Grant Program increases public awareness, understanding, and appreciation of the traditional arts in the South by funding projects that bring a traditional artist/ensemble and a scholar/folklorist for multi-day residencies in Southern communities. Potential applicants are encouraged to contact Teresa Hollingsworth at 404-874-7244 ext. 14 or firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss projects prior to submitting an application.
Deadline: December 4, 2017
Grants for Professional Development, Artist Planning Visits and More!
South Arts offers funding of up to $700 to support travel expenses so that presenters can see live performances, participate in professional development opportunities, and plan residencies with artists. Potential applicants are required to contact Nikki Estes at 404-874-7244 ext. 16 or email@example.com to discuss projects prior to submitting an application. Deadline: Year-round, at least 60 days prior to activities.
