South Arts Express Grants

South Arts’ new Express Grant program is an opportunity for presenting arts organizations in rural Southern communities (with populations of 50,000 or below) to receive fee support to present Southern guest performing or literary artists from outside of the presenter’s state. These quick turnaround grants offer more flexibility for programming that may not fit within South Arts’ annual grantmaking schedule. Touring support is awarded to theater, music, opera, musical theater, dance, fiction, creative nonfiction and poetry projects that contain both a public performance or reading and an educational component. The maximum request is 50% of the artist fee, up to $2,000. These grants are very limited and awarded on a first-come/first-served basis; so early submission is encouraged. A dollar-for-dollar cash match is a requirement. Rolling deadline.

Professional Development and Artistic Planning Grant

As we advance Southern vitality through the arts, South Arts offers a limited number of Professional Development and Artistic Planning grants to nonprofit performing, visual, media/film, multidisciplinary and literary arts presenting organizations in our nine-state region with support from the National Endowment for the Arts. Funding up to $1,000 is available to support the professional development needs of Southern presenters/programmers/curators, strengthen program design, and increase organizational capacity. For the purposes of these guidelines, “presenters” are defined as organizations that present or host guest artists for engagements in their communities. These grants are very limited and awarded on a first-come/first-served basis, so early submission is encouraged. A dollar-for-dollar cash match is a requirement. Rolling deadline.

Traditional Arts Touring Grant

Traditional Arts Touring grants work to increase the 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. This funding program is open to a wide variety of organizations, including community cultural organizations, schools/colleges/universities, libraries, museums, presenters, etc. The program serves both communities and traditional artists. Priority consideration is given to support new applicants and underserved communities.
