Description of Support or Services The Presenter Travel Fund supports travel by programming or curatorial staff of arts presenting organizations. This includes: travel plans that enable the applicant to see the work of several different artists (for example, by attending a festival or showcase, or by traveling to a city or region where multiple cultural events are happening), travel to conferences with strong showcasing components, travel plans to see outstanding multi-cultural, contemporary, or traditional/folkloric art, and travel for arts programming staff who have limited access to other sources of subsidy. Grants to non-profit, New England-based organizations will cover up to 50% of total expenses, including mileage, economy class transportation, meals, lodging, admission, and, where applicable, conference or showcase registration fees. If awarded, grant funds are released on a reimbursement basis after appropriate documentation is submitted.
