Funding Assistance

Barefoot Puppet Theatre has been part of the Virginia Commission for the Arts Touring Program for over twenty years. Companies and artists within this directory have the responsibility for allocating a certain amount of funding that is available to Virginia schools, libraries, museums, and other non-profit organizations. Artists in this directory have gone through a rigorous application process. This program enables many Virginia-based touring artists to share their work throughout the Commonwealth by defraying the travel expenses to communities and venues.
