The Texas Commission on the Arts
maintains an approved Touring Roster of Texas-based touring companies
and artists. In this program, the artist or artist's management sets the
fee and negotiates the booking. Applicants must have a history of
touring and maintain a reasonable fee range. Roster artists are required
to perform outside their community regularly. Touring artists offer
single performances as well as optional services that may include
workshops, master classes, lecture-demonstrations, arts education
components, residencies, or short performances. The fact that an artist
is approved to the roster does not imply or guarantee that the artist
will receive bookings in the coming year. Please read the FAQfor more information. This program is available every other year.
Individuals and performing groups residing primarily in Texas are
eligible to apply.
Nonprofit organizations that are recognized by the
IRS as Texas-based organizations are also eligible.
One application per artist/group. If you work as a soloist and in a group, you can indicate in your group's application that soloists (or smaller
groups) are also available.
This is for placement on the Texas Touring Roster from September 1, 2018 through August 31, 2020.
The information you enter in this application form will be the basis for your roster profile for that time period. TCA is always glad to update contact information, but will not update your roster profile (photograph, roster program description, and fee ranges.)
TCA will require a webinar training for all approved companies and artists to ensure familiarity with the TCA grant processes.
