The Texas Arts Plan

Touring Roster Inclusion

Eligibility: Texas-based nonprofits, individuals, universities, and unincorporated/for-profit groups providing arts performances

Intent: To ensure that every Texas community has access to high quality arts programming at an affordable price.

The Texas Commission on the Arts maintains an approved roster of Texas-based touring companies and artists. In this program, the artist or artist's management sets the fee and negotiates the booking. Applicants must have a history of touring and maintain a reasonable fee range. Roster artists are required to perform outside their community regularly. Touring artists offer performances as well as optional services that may include workshops, master classes, lecture-demonstrations, arts education components, residencies, or short performances. The fact that an artist is approved to the roster does not imply or guarantee that the artist will receive bookings in the coming year. Please read the FAQ for more information. This competitive program is available every other year. The TCA Touring Roster is available online: Texas Touring Roster.
