The Jazz Touring Network is a presenter-based membership program that provides support for professional development opportunities and performance fee subsidies for its participants. New members are selected on an annual basis through an open, competitive selection process. The focus is on performing arts presenters within the mid-Atlantic region that have had limited experience presenting jazz, and who also work with communities underserved by the arts. Once selected, membership in the program is ongoing contingent upon meeting annual participation requirements.
A program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation since 2001, the Jazz Touring Network has supported more than 40 presenting organizations throughout the mid-Atlantic region.
Questions regarding the Jazz Touring Network should be directed to Jess Porter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Jazz Touring Network is made possible through the generous support of the National Endowment for the Arts’ Regional Touring Program.
The 2016-2017 deadline for presenters to submit applications for membership in the Jazz Touring Network program was September 16, 2016. The guidelines below are for information purposes only.
