Local artists selected for Creative Ambassadors Program

Friday, January 25, 2019 by Chad Swiatecki

The city’s Cultural Arts Division and Music and Entertainment Division have selected the artists who will participate in this year’s Creative Ambassadors Program, which provides stipends and other resources to Austin artists traveling outside of Texas to promote their creative works. This year’s class includes: Annalise Gratovich (visual art); Hidden Room Theatre; Ariel Dance Company; Capital City Black Film Festival and PJ Raval (film); Kydd Jones, Montopolis, Greg Gonzalez, Grupo Fantasma and Atlas Maior (music); and Usha Akella (multidisciplinary). The program is open to Austin artists who plan to travel in support of their work. Applicants are evaluated by a selection panel on a number of criteria, including level of expertise, prior awards, length of time as an artist, and how candidates will enhance the city’s global profile. Applications for the 2020 class will open Oct. 1 and close Dec. 1. The complete program guide is available here.
