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. Membership criteria for JTN prioritizes performing arts presenters in the mid-Atlantic region with little or no experience presenting jazz, while also encouraging applications from experienced jazz presenters seeking to strengthen their programming. The JTN prioritizes participation by presenters that work in and with communities underserved by the arts. Once selected, membership in the program is ongoing contingent upon meeting annual participation requirements.

A list of current JTN members is available on the Members tab.

Questions regarding the Jazz Touring Network should be directed to Jess Porter at jess@midatlanticarts.org.

The Jazz Touring Network is made possible through the generous support of the National Endowment for the Arts’ Regional Touring Program.
