In addition to Traditional Arts Touring (TAT) Grants, South Arts has officially launched their new Cross-Sector Impact Grants program. South Arts recognizes that as communities continue to change, the arts play an incomparable role in addressing many of our communal and individual challenges and strengths. Further, the value of partnership, and working together across sectors, brings new opportunity, increased effectiveness, and greater depth to collective work. Through this new program, South Arts seeks to provide significant support to projects developed by partners that harness the power of “Arts & …”.

Cross-Sector Impact Grants is a new program of grantmaking, open to all art forms, for partnership projects taking place in one of South Arts’ nine member states. For FY20, eligible projects will feature “Arts & …”, for example, arts and the military, arts and aging, arts and community revitalization. Applicants may propose a project design that they believe will be most impactful, with a minimum of two public-facing events being a basic requirement. Applicants may be organizations, units of government, higher educational institutions, or artists. Matching grants of up to $15,000 will be awarded, and South Arts anticipates that successful applications will be fully funded. Letters of Interest from applicants are due July 18.

Traditional Arts Touring (TAT) Grants are also available. TAT provides organizations with resources to host traditional arts residencies in their communities. Traditional artists must be from a South Arts partner state other than where the applicant is located. Grants are available up to $5,000 and are a 1:2 match. South Arts funds presentations by traditional performing or visual artists. There are two deadlines: July 15, 2019 and December 5, 2019.
