South Arts is accepting applications from arts organizations for Professional Development & Artist Planning Grants.

Professional Development & Artistic Planning Grants ensure that arts organizations have access to the tools and resources to best serve their communities.

Organizations may apply for up to $1,000 to support staff expenses to attend conferences, festivals, exhibitions, workshops and other professional development opportunities, or arrange for an artist’s travel expenses for onsite planning meetings with the organization.

COVID-19 update for Professional Development & Artistic Planning Grants:
South Arts recognizes that travel for professional development might not be possible.
Applications will be accepted for virtual professional development opportunities,
as well as staff training.

South Arts strongly believes professional development for presenters, programmers and curators is integral to success, including traveling to see new works and attending convenings. This grant program is open to film, visual arts, performing arts, literary arts and multidisciplinary presenting organizations.
