NEST (New England States Touring) funds presentations of New England-based performing artists from outside of a presenter’s state.
NEST grants are awarded through a competitive selection process. Grants are available in amounts of up to 50% of the artists’ fees, and typically range from $400 to $4,000. Requests below $400 will not be accepted. Artists’ fees may include costs for creation of new work, travel, and per diem.
Grant amounts are based on:
- The artist’s fee.
- How well the project meets the funding criteria below (applicants who receive the highest scores receive the maximum amount, which is 50% of the artist’s fee).
