Best deal in town for artists

Monday, October 3, 2022 by Tai Moses

Today’s the day, artists: The city has begun accepting applications for the 2024 season of its Artist Access Program. What exactly is the Artist Access Program? According to the city’s announcement, it “provides free or low-cost rehearsal and production spaces to both emerging and established performance artists from the Austin area. Created to address the needs of local artists, participating organizations collaborate with the city of Austin’s Cultural Centers to produce professional performances for both local and visiting audiences.” Participating artists and arts organizations enjoy expanded rehearsal hours as well as the chance “to produce public performances in a space for free or at a reduced rental fee of $1 per ticket sold.” Marketing resources, help with event planning and support staff are also part of the deal. Austin Shakespeare, Austin Dance Ensemble, Lannaya Drum & Dance and A’lante Flamenco are just a few of the organizations that are currently participating in the program. The deadline to apply is Dec. 18.
