The four artists represent the racial, geographic, aesthetic, career stage, disciplinary/genre, and cultural diversity of work touring around the network and we’re thrilled about presenting them this December. Sharing the stage with these four artists will be four Austin-based artists, selected by a committee convened by Annual Meeting hosts Women & Their Work and Fusebox Festival.

All the selected national artists have completed a Creation Fund, toured their work, and completed their Forth Fund. The selection process consisted of a full application and panel review by a selection panel comprised of NPN Partner, local Austin, NPN/VAN staff, production, and artist representation. Applications were evaluated based on feasibility, potential Partner interest, and readiness to tour.
