Additional Funds for Indigenous Artists
This year, we are glad to partner with Western Arts Alliance (WAA) on their Advancing Indigenous Performance Program that promotes the touring and engagement of Indigenous artists from the United States or its Territories (includes of Alaskan Native, Native Hawaiian, Native American, and other Indigenous artists from the Territories).
An application that meets the engagement requirements and features an Indigenous artist may be eligible for a matching grant from WAA dependent upon available funds. For example, an artist’s contracted fee of $20,000 may receive up to $4,000 from the Arts Midwest Touring Fund and up to an additional $4,000 from WAA. Selected applicants may need to complete additional reporting requirements for WAA and participating artists may be asked to complete a survey.
