Presenter Development Program

The Montana Performing Arts Consortium (MPAC) presenter development program is an opportunity for small budget rural series presenters to receive artistic and residency fee support for the 2019-2020 season series.

This program supports a maximum of 20% of artist fees and/or 50% of artist residency fees.

This program depends on state funds from a Montana Cultural Trust legislative grant and the Montana Arts Council: these allocations are not guaranteed, do not sign contracts assuming funds will be available.

Awards will range from a minimum of $300 to a maximum of $2,000.


Requirements to receive Presenter Development funding:

  • Presenter must attend MPAC's Annual Artist Showcase Conference 

  • Presenter must have hosted three or more ticket fee events in the prior year (not counting 2020-2021)

  • Presenter must book one Montana act in the year for which funding is applied

  • Presenter must submit financials (form B), report on their previous season (form A) and a letter of intent

  • Presenter must fill out form A, for the award year, to receive second half funding
