The work South Arts conducts across the region and nation would not be possible without coordinated efforts and deep partnerships. We work closely with the following colleagues on many of our programs, and encourage you to connect with them.

Presenter Networks

South Arts works closely with the performing arts presenter networks in our region. Presenter networks offer opportunities to connect with, learn from, and block-book with your nearby colleagues and organizations. Contact the your local network for more information on membership, meetings, block-booking discussions, and professional development opportunities.
