Texas Commission on the Arts Texas Touring Roster Application Deadline January 31, 2024
The Texas Touring Arts Program is designed to ensure that all Texans have the ability to enjoy performances by outstanding Texas-based companies and artists in their own communities. The Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA) provides grants to help with the costs of bringing in companies and artists from this roster for performances. Performing arts companies and artists from throughout the state apply to be included on the Texas Touring Roster.
These artists must have a history of touring and must be willing to travel outside of their community to do a performance. They are also required to maintain a reasonable fee range. Evaluators with expertise in touring arts evaluate applicants to this program. TCA has prepared a wealth of application resources, all linked in the program guidelines. We recommend that potential applicants review all these resources.
TCA staff will also be offering live online Q&A sessions, dates and registration links below:
