The goal of the Community Artist Program (formerly NTP – Neighborhood Touring Program) is to provide support and opportunities for ethnic artists and cultural organizations to teach, perform, and exhibit at host facilities in Dallas Neighborhoods.
This helps promote cultural awareness, heightens citizen understanding of art forms and celebrates the various traditions that contribute to the composition of this city. Artists apply annually for inclusion in the CAP roster; a review panel recommends artists who are then approved for inclusion in the CAP roster by the Cultural Affairs Commission.
There is no guaranteed funding for artists in the CAP roster; their contract funding will depend on the requests received for their services by the Host sites. The Host site requests artists from the roster/directory for community-based programs and performances. Their requests are reviewed and approved based on funding availability.
