Grants for jazz artists, from anywhere in the United States
Take your music to places it has never been with a grant from Jazz Road, a national initiative from South Arts.
Mid-America Arts Alliance is partnering with the national network of Regional Arts Organizations for Jazz Road, an artist-centric touring and residency grants program to spread jazz throughout the country, strengthen work opportunities and compensation for jazz artists, and bolster deeper engagement between jazz musicians, presenters and communities.
U.S.-based jazz artists who define themselves as emerging to more established along a career spectrum are eligible. Jazz Road contains two grants programs, Jazz Road Tours and Jazz Road Creative Residencies, with regularly recurring deadlines.
