Artstour & Live Music Roster Invitation

The Illinois Arts Council Agency (IACA) in collaboration with the Illinois Presenters Network invites you to apply to the 2023-2024 Artstour & Live Music Artists Roster. Applications are now available to Illinois performing artists and ensembles in the disciplines of dance, music, theater, and ethnic & folk arts.
Artstour Roster artists are professional performers who demonstrate high artistic skills, creative programming, and efficient management. The Artstour Roster is promoted to hundreds of Illinois presenters including schools, libraries, park districts, arts and community organizations, as well as performing arts presenters. Illinois artists can increase their visibility to Illinois presenters and expand their opportunities to tour throughout the state by applying to be part of the Artstour Roster.
A panel selected by The Illinois Presenters Network will review applications based on artistic merit, professionalism and demonstrated ability to tour. Applicants will receive notification by email of the panel’s decision by mid-summer, 2023.

The application deadline is May 5, 2023 at 11:59pm. 

The Illinois Arts Council Agency's Artstour & Live Music grant program provides support to eligible Illinois not-for-profit organizations seeking to present Illinois performing artists, companies, or groups for performances, collaborations, or short residencies held in conjunction with performances.
