THE ARTISTS IN SCHOOLS + COMMUNITIES ROSTER 

The Nevada Arts Council’s new 2015–2018 Artists in Schools + Communities Roster (AIS+C) is a combination of the agency’s three existing rosters—the Arts Learning Roster, the Nevada Folk Arts Roster and the Tumblewords Roster—and features a diverse representation of individual artists and ensembles from Nevada and beyond. The AIS+C Roster is designed as an online resource for schools, organizations and communities to broaden and diversify participation in the arts through the engagement of artists in educational and community cultural residencies and programs. Application to the roster closed September 30, 2014. A panel of artists, educators, presenters and community members will review the applications in late winter and the roster artists will be announced in early spring. To learn more about the roster and artist residencies, click on AIS+C Roster.
