South Arts Offers Traditional Arts Touring Grants

Posted by: Evangeline Mee

Traditional Arts Touring (TAT) Grants provide funding support for residency projects to present Southern traditional arts (dance, foodways, music, storytelling, material culture, etc.) in communities.

Artists must be from a South Arts state (Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Louisiana) other than their own. In other words, a Kentucky organization applying for a TAT grant must invite a traditional artist from a South Arts state other
than Kentucky. In addition, each residency project must be paired with a folklorist/community scholar.

The Traditional Arts Grant Program works to increase the public awareness, understanding, and appreciation of the traditional arts in the South, through funding projects that bring a traditional artist/ensemble and a scholar/folklorist for multi-day residencies in Southern communities.

This funding program is open to a wide variety of organizations, including community cultural organizations, schools/colleges/universities, libraries, museums, presenters, etc. Unincorporated organizations may apply through a fiscal agent. The program is designed to serve both communities and traditional artists. Priority consideration is given to support new applicants and underserved communities. South Arts staff can also direct you to potential resources and networks to identify traditional artists and scholars/folklorists.

The Deadline for applications is December 5, 2018. Projects must be completed by June 30, 2019.

Applicants are strongly advised to contact Teresa Hollingsworth (Senior Director, Film and Traditional Arts), or 404-874-7244 x 14 or Traditional Arts Program Assistant Jackson Hall to discuss your project before you submit your application.
