TCA Opens Up Touring Roster to Include Visual & Media/Film Artists
Deadline: January 31, 2010
Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA) maintains an approved roster of Texas-based touring companies and artists. Non-profit organizations (schools, libraries, community centers, cities, festivals, and museums) can apply to TCA for a grant to help with the costs of bringing these talented individuals into their community for performances, master classes, lecture-demonstrations and residencies. Traditionally, the roster has been made up of performing artists (dance, music, theatre, literature, storytelling). For the first time, TCA is opening up the roster to include visual arts and film/media artists; however, those artists must be able to offer a program that is performative or interactive/collaborative and able to fit within a pre-specified time-frame. Placement on the roster is competitive. Inclusion in the roster does not guarantee that anyone will contract with you for a project; the roster is a marketing tool. For more information, contact TCA staff at 512/463-5535 or email@example.com.
