As a Touring Fund recipient, each organization must present a professional artist or ensemble in a public performance and create a community activity that reaches an audience with limited access to the arts.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Arts Midwest is allowing these performances and community activities to take place virtually.
In addition, certain Touring Fund guidelines have been temporarily changed for the 2020-21 cycle.
For this year only, organizations will be allowed to work with visual artists in lieu of performing artists, and/or work with artists within their state. These changes aim to flexibly support organizations as they work through uncertainty.
