DC Performing Arts Presenters Initiative
Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, in partnership with the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities, has announced the availability of guidelines for the 2011-2012 DC Performing Arts Presenters Initiative.
Designed to support the presentation of touring performing artists at venues within the District of Columbia and to increase access to the arts, the initiative encourages efforts to expand and diversify programming and audiences and helps organizations undertake activities they would not otherwise be able to do.
District-based nonprofit organizations that meet the eligibility criteria are invited to apply. Proposed artists must be based outside of DC but based in the mid-Atlantic region (DE, MD, NJ, NY, PA, VA, U.S. Virgin Islands, and WV) or outside the United States. Grant awards differ for each jurisdiction but range from $500 – $5,000.
The application receipt deadline is Wednesday, January 26, 2011.
Guidelines and application forms are available here.
Questions concerning project eligibility or the application process should be directed to Krista Bradley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
