The Presenter Touring Assistance Grant deadline has been extended from December 1, 2020 to February 1, 2021.
VCA is allowing for flexibility on the four-week advance application deadline for presenters. Applications from presenters must now be received at least ONE week in advance with one payment in full once the final report is received.
In order to help hard hit communities rebuild, VCA will eliminate the 30-mile radius regulation (as was done for the virtual performances) for live performances in FY21 (through June 15, 2021).
Technical Assistance grants will now be available to current FY21 VCA touring and teaching artists for equipment to record and present virtual performances as high quality recordings have become more and more important.
Between mid-March and June 2020, the authors of this report interviewed or surveyed more than 160 arts leaders and field experts on the implications for the arts of COVID-19 and developments including the then-emerging racial justice movement. The arts leaders also were asked about their strategies and priorities for responding to the uncertainties of the moment.
