Jazz Road Tours: Guidelines & Application Now Available

South Arts

Offering grants to artists of up to $15,000 to build tours

Applications due August 1, 2019

South Arts is now accepting applications for the newly-launched Jazz Road Toursprogram, offering grants of up to $15,000 to support tours by emerging and mid-career jazz artists. Artists can apply for funds to build tours that include three to six sites, with an emphasis on bringing jazz to rural, isolated, and underserved parts of the country.

Jazz Road Tours support artists with grants to bring their work directly to new communities and audiences. The first cycle of funding will support tours occurring between October 2019 and September 2020, with additional cycles to be announced later this year.
