Grant For Professional Development and Artistic Planning

South Arts

This grant program provides assistance for a wide-range of professional development opportunities supporting resources needed to succeed in the work of presenting. In the past, these grants have been used for:

  • traveling to see the work of artists being considered for future presentations, or to expand the presenters’ knowledge of an artform; 
  • participating in a significant professional development opportunity; and
  • hosting an artist planning visit.

The maximum request is 50% of the travel expenses, up to $1,000. Awarded funds are disbursed on a reimbursement basis only. Applications are due at least 60 days prior to the event. An application may be submitted to support multiple staff members or artists (up to the maximum request of $1,000 total).
