Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation Invites Applications for ArtsCONNECT Program
Deadline: March 24, 2006

The Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation (<a href="http://www.midatlanticarts.org/">http://www.midatlanticarts.org/</a>) is accepting applications for the ArtsCONNECT Program, which supports collaborations between presenters and artists in all the performing arts disciplines, including dance, jazz, music, opera, theater, and folk/traditional arts.

The purpose of ArtsCONNECT is to strengthen the presentation of performing artists by supporting artist/presenter collaborations and partnerships anchored in the states and jurisdictions of the mid-Atlantic region. The region served by MAAF includes Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Virginia, and West Virginia.

The program will support a limited number of touring projects conceived by presenter consortia, networks, or partnerships in the mid-Atlantic region that involve public performances, educational activities, and audience outreach strategies for underserved populations with performing artists of the highest caliber.

Only presenter consortia are eligible to apply to ArtsCONNECT. For the purposes of the program, MAAF defines a presenter as an organization that selects and engages touring artists to perform work before audiences in their communities. Each presenter partner in the consortium must be a legally incorporated non-profit organization with 501(c)(3) status or a unit of government.

The current funding cycle will support projects taking place between July 1, 2006, and June 30, 2007.

Project development in preparation for application to the ArtsCONNECT Program requires advance planning and partnership development. Visit the MAAF Web site for complete program information and application guidelines.
