UPDATE: The PARD Executive Team approved of the LARP Review Panel Recommendations on Tuesday, April 2, 2019. On the following day, the ESB-MACC Advisory Board approved the recommendations with one exception: They requested that the two-term limit suggested by the Panel go to the Working Group discussion.

The LARP has become the Latino Artist Access Program. Interested artists can apply now through April 18, 2019. More information here.

LARP fosters the development of Austin-area Latinx arts organizations and artists in all disciplines in an effort to build and enhance quality, sustainable community arts, and cultural programming. LARP is undergoing a review for the first time since it began in 2013 to ensure that the program can grow in its mission to tangibly benefit participants to graduate from the residency with a greater ability to sustain artistic production.

Austin Parks and Recreation is seeking Latinx artists throughout the community to weigh in on the the future of LARP.

The Program Review will cover the following areas:

  • Mission and Purpose
  • Application
  • Selection Process
  • Guidelines and Procedures
  • Contract

The Review Panel will pass on its list of recommendations to the PARD Executive Team by the end of April.
