The Maryland Performing Artist Touring Roster is a list of juried Maryland-based artists who have a demonstrated history of successful, professional touring engagements.

MSAC uses the roster to promote artistic collaboration between Maryland touring artists and Maryland presenters with the goal of increasing touring engagements for Maryland professional performing artists. To view the roster, click here to visit the Maryland Arts Directory and use the Filter to search for artists and companies with Touring Grant Funding Available.

Applicants must:

  • Be 18 years of age or older

  • Meet Maryland residency requirements (see Guidelines for further information)

  • Be able to demonstrate a successful history of professional touring engagements

Applications, including all work samples, must be completed in Smart Simple. MSAC utilizes a multi-disciplinary, statewide grant panel to electronically review (approve or deny) applications for the Touring Roster.

Applications for the Touring Roster are accepted on a rolling basis and reviewed monthly by a panel (starting August 2021)

See the Grant Guidelines for detailed information.

FY2021 Touring Roster applicants will be notified via Smart Simple following their quarterly review period.

There are no Final Report requirements for Roster Artists. Artists that do not receive bookings within any fiscal year (July 1 - June 30) will be asked to submit a request for continuance on the roster that will be reviewed by MSAC Program Directors.
