Howdy and welcome to the AVPA website!
The AVPA strives to increase resources to existing TAMU performing and visual arts departments; to supplement existing campus arts offerings by producing diverse, innovative, and prominent performing and visual artists; and to facilitate coordination between the TAMU campus, arts organizations at peer and aspirant peer universities, and within a larger community of artist/scholars. The AVPA supports practice-based research, and understands the development of performing and visual arts projects as epistemologies in their own right as well as aesthetic endeavors. Successful grant applications will demonstrate an ability to combine theory and practice and to use performance or visual arts as a research method. Grant proposals are expected to support the priorities of AVPA. The AVPA now offers five competitive grants:
- AVPA Student Travel Grant
- AVPA Student Arts Enhancement Grant New
- AVPA Course Development Grant
- AVPA Arts Enhancement Grant
- AVPA Theme Call: Technologies of Art Grant New
