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. The final opportunity for input is on the draft contract below.

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. Please review the contract draft below and provide comments. Deadline for review is Thursday, June 27, 2019.

The Review Panel will review the contract comments at the end of June and pass recommendations to the PARD Executive Team. The updated draft will then be sent to the Law Department for review.
