KS Touring Artist Roster

The Kansas Creative Arts Industries maintains an approved Touring Roster of Kansas-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 single performances as well as optional services that may include workshops, master classes, lecture-demonstrations, arts education components, residencies, or short performances.

Communities and organizations can apply for KCAIC funding to engage and deepen the impact of arts programming on local and under-served audiences through exposure to and interaction with professional visiting arts. Visiting Artist grants that only feature KTR artists may apply at any time up to 30 days before the first date of activity listed in the application. These grants will be reviewed for compliance with general policies and approved by staff. To apply for funding to host a Kansas Touring Roster artists, view the application at

If you are an artist, becoming a Kansas Touring Performer helps you to be found by presenters.
