What Are Missouri Touring Performers?
The name "Missouri Touring Performers" means two things:• A Missouri Arts Council program
that through monthly grants brings a variety of Missouri performers--including dancers, musicians, theater performers, storytellers and more--to communities throughout the state • The artists who are listed in the program's directory
Artists formally apply to be included in the directory, and are reviewed by a Missouri Arts Council panel for their artistic quality, management ability, and touring experience. The Missouri Arts Council then offers Mounthly Strategic Touring Grants to assist presenters to bring in artists selected from the directory to perform in their communities and schools.
There are currently 172 performers in the directory. The number increases twice a year with semi-annual applications and approvals. The next deadline for application to join the directory is February 24, 2014.
If you are with an organization looking for a high quality performer for your event, the Missouri Touring Performers directory is your ideal resource. If you are an artist, becoming a Missouri Touring Performer helps you to be found by presenters. If you are simply a person who loves the arts, browsing our directory will introduce you to a wealth of Missouri talent.
Artists are currently listed in only one category. If you cannot find the artist you are seeking and you believe they are on the list, please contact Leslie Forrester, Missouri Arts Council program specialist for Missouri Touring Performers, at (314) 340-6858 or (866) 407-4752. For Performers
