TEXAS TOURING ROSTER | Texas Commission on the Arts
We're honored to represent our home state as official Texas Touring Artists on the Texas Commission on the Arts' Texas Touring Roster. This means support may be available to assist with our booking fees through the Arts Respond Performance Support grant program!
This quarterly program provides support to Texas Public Schools and Libraries, Not-for-Profit Organizations (including Churches) and City Municipalities hosting events open to the community for hiring an artist from the TCA Touring Roster to give a performance, residency, or workshop.
These applications must be submitted in advance of the performance and by the appropriate quarterly deadline, and they are funded based on a sliding scale ranging from 30-to-50 percent of contracted fees. Support is based on TCA’s available funds.
The folks at TCA are great to work with, and they really want to help your organization receive funding! Performance Support for Adler & Hearne engagements is available for the 2018-2020 touring season.

Resources for Arts Presenters
To encourage partnerships with other state, regional, and national organizations, a partial list of performing arts service providers is included.
Southwest Performing Arts Presenters is a consortium of performing arts organizations who present and promote dance, music, theatre, and visual arts in Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and New Mexico. SWPAP's main purpose is to promote cooperative efforts among its members. These include booking collaborations, networking and professional development workshops, a listserv for members, and regular membership meetings.
Mid-America Arts Alliance (MAAA) is a regional membership organization that includes Texas. MAAA collaborates with Arts Midwest in offering the Midwest Arts booking conference each September and a performing arts touring program very similar to TCA's called the Regional Touring Program. This program has a rolling deadline, and applications are due three weeks prior to the start date of the project. Grants are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, until the allocation for each state is gone.
