"Our strategic planning sessions not only worked to identify the needs of the Performing Arts community, but also specific tactics to meet those needs," said Debbie Racca-Sittre, Director, Department of Arts & Culture. "These new grants meet the objective of determining additional funding sources for Performing Arts as well as providing increased access to affordable and diverse venues."
The Performing Arts grants utilize revenue generated by the new Arts & Entertainment Fund, created with the City's Convention, Sports Facilities Department's five-year ticketing agreement with Ticketmaster for City-controlled venues including the Lila Cockrell Theatre, Alamodome and Carver Community Cultural Center. Ten percent of all facility fees collected annually will be contributed to this fund, with the revenues managed by the Department of Arts & Culture to fund the Performing Arts grant programs.
Each grant has specific eligibility, Intent to Apply, and application requirements, which can be found at SanAntonio.gov/artgrants. More information about the Performing Arts Strategic Plan can be found at https://www.getcreativesanantonio.com/CulTUArt.
