SouthArts Presentation Grants Deadline Fast Approaching

From SouthArts –

Deadline: March 1, 2024.

Presentation Grants are open for organizations in our nine-state region of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee with awards of up to $9,500 to present a Southern artist for a performing arts, literary arts, visual arts, or film engagement.

Applications for Presentation Grants are still open for one more month! Presentation Grants are an opportunity for organizations in South Arts’ nine-state region to receive artist fee support to present Southern guest film directors, 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/community engagement component. These grants are limited and very competitive. Based on the artist fee, the maximum request is $9,500 for modern dance and contemporary ballet or $7,500 for other artistic disciplines.

The grant requires a dollar-for-dollar cash match (for example, an applicant that requests $7,500 must provide a $7,500 cash match for a project with a $15,000 artist fee). The project must take place between July 1, 2024 and June 30, 2025.
