If you’re a performing artist, you can get yourself listed (for free) as a New England States Touring (NEST) artist. Why bother? Because New England presenters can apply for funds through the NEST Program to offset the cost of your performing fees. Learn more on becoming a NEST artist.
The next deadline for presenters to apply for NEST grants is September 1. These grants are given to nonprofit organizations in New England to support performances by select NEST artists (this could be you). NEST artists must meet the NEST artist requirements on MatchBook.org. So if you’re thing is chamber music, or contemporary dance, or opera, spoken word, puppet theater, storytelling, well you get the picture, go ahead and get yourself listed on MatchBook.org.
