Arts on Tour Roster Opens for New Applications

Arkansas Arts Council - Wednesday, August 07, 2019

The Arkansas Arts Council is accepting applications to join our Arts on Tour Roster. The deadline to apply is Oct. 18.

The Arts on Tour Roster lists quality, professional artists who are vetted and chosen through an application, audition and interview process. The list helps artists by positioning them for hire through an Arts Council reimbursement program.

Eligible artists live in Arkansas or have an Arkansas-based contact and must have done concerts, exhibitions, programs or lectures-demonstrations away from their home location at least twice in the past year.

Nonprofit organizations that contract with artists who are listed on the Roster are eligible for partial reimbursement for hiring them. This fee support program allows the Arts Council to pay 40 percent of qualified costs, up to $2,000, to the hiring entity. The nonprofit organization must apply for reimbursement, which is made after the event, and is required to have proper documentation.

This program helps bring quality performances and exhibitions to various locations across Arkansas. Applications for artists who want to join our roster in 2020 are available at arkansasarts.org.

For information, contact the Grants Program manager at Jess.Anthony@arkansas.gov or 501-324-9768.
