A nonprofit regional arts organization headquartered in Minneapolis, Arts Midwest serves audiences, arts organizations, and artists across Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Wisconsin, and beyond.
To that end, Arts Midwest is inviting organizations that contract artists/ensembles to perform in their own or a community venue to apply to the Arts Midwest Touring Fund. Engagements must run between July 1, 2018, and June 30, 2019. The maximum award through the fund typically is $4,000, with a minimum award of $500. Support from the Arts Midwest Touring Fund must be used to offset the contracted fee and may not be used for other purposes or costs.
To be eligible, all applicants must be a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, a unit of state or local government, or a federally recognized tribal community or tribe. Applicants also must be located in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, or Wisconsin. In addition, applicants must compensate all professional performers and related or supporting professional personnel at no less than the prevailing minimum wage.
