TourWest Grant Program
Deadline: Thursday, April 1, 2021, 11:59 pm MT
WESTAF’s TourWest 2021 – 2022 grant program officially launches February 10, 2021. Supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, TourWest provides subsidies to arts and community organizations within the 13-state WESTAF region for the presentation of touring performers and literary artists. Grant awards are $2,500 or 50% of the overall project expenses, whichever is less, and require a one-to-one cash match by the presenting organization. Applications are due by April 1, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. Mountain Time.
Projects must take place between September 1, 2021 and August 31, 2022 and must include both a public performance and an educational outreach activity. Visit the TourWest site for eligibility criteria, guidelines, and policies. Applications will be reviewed in the spring by a panel of industry leaders on artistic and cultural merit, presentation of programs to underserved and/or culturally diverse audiences, quality of the outreach activities, engagement and collaboration (including block booking), and thoroughness of the project’s planning.
