Artists interested in applying for the Parks and Recreation Department’s Artist Access Program have until Dec. 2 to apply for inclusion in the 2021 season. The program provides free or low-cost rehearsal and production spaces for selected artists at PARD facilities around the city. Participating venues include Dougherty Arts Center, George Washington Carver Museum, Asian American Resource Center, Zilker Hillside Theater and Oakwood Cemetery Chapel. Applicants must be registered as cultural contractors with the Cultural Arts Division and must be working artists living in the Austin area. The 2021 program season runs from Oct. 1, 2020, to Sept. 30, 2021, with selected artists able to use studio or performance space as available at participating venues.
