Celebrating Michigan Rich Cultural Heritage

Arts & Humanities Touring Program

The Arts & Humanities Touring Program, a joint collaboration of the Michigan Humanities Council and Michigan Council for Arts & Cultural Affairs, includes a directory of Michigan’s top presenters and performers as well as granting opportunities. Michigan nonprofits can apply for Touring grants to host humanities programming featuring members of the Directory.

For more information specific to the Touring Grants, please click here.

On Oct. 10, 2012 MHC hosted PerformFest, an Arts & Humanities Touring Showcase featuring performers and storytellers featured in the 2012-15 Directory. Take a look at this short video – which includes labeled performers – and see the caliber of talent you can bring to your community!


2012-15 Arts & Humanities Touring Directory

Welcome to the current edition of Michigan’s Arts & Humanities Touring Directory. The 175 featuring offerings represent some of the state’s most-talented performing and visual artists and humanities presenters. The directory offers performers and presenters the opportunity to present their work throughout the state through work with nonprofit recipients of the Touring grants. The directory is updated every three years and the process includes formal adjudication of the presenters and performers by peer-review.

The directory listings include program descriptions, fees and contact persons. Although fee rangers are referenced, they are negotiable. Program planners must contact the person identified by the performer or presenter to discuss all listed information.
