Jazz Road Creative Residencies


Mid-career artists, take the time you need to explore your work. Jazz Road Creative Residencies support multi-week engagements. Launching in early 2021.

Detailed Program Description

Jazz Road logoThe goal of Jazz Road is simple: to support jazz artists with grants that bring their work to a wide range of venues throughout the country, deepening public appreciation for this art form on a community level.

Led by South Arts, Jazz Road was created in partnership with five other regional arts organizations (RAOs) across the United States. This program was made possible thanks to the generous support of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

The Jazz Road program includes two grant offerings: Jazz Road Tours, with grants of up to $15,000 each to support multi-town tours, and Jazz Road Residencies, which support community-based visits of two weeks or more.

Important Dates & Deadlines

Jazz Road Creative Residencies will launch in early 2021. Guidelines and application information will be posted then.
