South Arts is accepting applications for Presentation Grants.
Presentation Grants are an opportunity for organizations in South Arts’ nine-state region to receive fee support to present Southern guest film directors, visual and performing artists, or writers from inside or outside of the presenter’s state. Artist fee support is awarded for film (documentary, fiction, experimental and animation), performing arts (theater, music, opera, musical theater and dance), literary arts (fiction, creative nonfiction and poetry), and visual arts (crafts, drawing, experimental, painting, photography, sculpture and mixed media).
Projects must include both a public presentation (film screening, performance, reading or exhibition) and an educational component. These grants are limited and very competitive. Based on the artist fee, the maximum request is $7,500 and requires a 50% cash match (for example, an applicant that requests $7,500 must provide a $3,750 cash match for a project with a $11,250 artist fee).
The application deadline is March 1, 2023
