Let’s become partners and apply for this grant.

Performing Arts on Tour
grants provide a 50% fee subsidy for Kentucky presenters to bring quality artists to communities across the commonwealth. Any Kentucky not-for-profit organization with tax-exempt status may apply. Government agencies, schools, colleges and universities are eligible if the project primarily serves a broad community audience. Performances must be open to the public and take place in Kentucky. To learn more about Mary's performances for a wide variety of audiences, click here.

Teacher Initiated Program
places professional artists in Kentucky schools for short-term residencies, at the invitation of the teacher or administrator. These one-, two-, three-, or four-week residencies provide hands-on arts experiences for both teachers and students. To learn more about some of Mary's past residency projects, click here.
