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 $9,500 and requires a 50% cash match.

Information Session
A webinar will be held via Zoom on December 6 at 1:00 pm ET. Register to attend.
A recording will be available for those unable to attend.  

  • Only nonprofit and governmental presenting organizations in South Arts’ nine-state region are eligible to apply. South Arts’ nine-state region includes Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. For the purposes of these guidelines, presenters are defined as organizations that present or host artists for engagements in their communities. Presenters can include but are not limited to community cultural organizations, community centers, churches, schools/colleges/universities, libraries, museums, film festivals/series, and performing arts centers. 
  • Applicants must have not-for-profit, tax-exempt status, be an official unit of local, county or state government, or be a federally recognized tribal community. For nonprofit applicants, tax-exempt status will be verified by a third-party entity. Governmental applicants must provide proof of government status. South Arts does not accept applications from fiscal agents for this grant program.
There are other eligibility requirements; please review the full guidelines carefully.

Note from your Grant Gopher team: The maximum grant amount has increased from $7,500 to $9,500.
