City ready to give artists access

Friday, November 2, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano

The Parks and Recreation Department is putting out a call to artists looking for space for rehearsals, performances, workshops or creation of “smaller works of art.” Using Hotel Occupancy Tax funds, the city’s cultural centers will now be open until 11:00 p.m. every day, and the city’s new Artist Access Program is up and running. According to a press release about the new program, “Applications are ranked by an impartial panel made up of professional, Austin-based artists using an established criteria. Rehearsal time is free, and performance space is rented at a reduced rate of $1 per ticket sold. … Applicants are also asked to provide a free educational program enhancement for the public. For more information on qualifications and to apply today, please visit”
