Nine artists/companies received a total of $120,000 to support the development of new work in the latest round of Creation Fund awards. Funded artists include:
The Creation Fund is supported, in part, by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the Ford Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.
“It was actually fun to reflect on how much I valued the NPN MLI experience,”
said Jesse Leaneagh after he wrote this reflection on his work at the Walker Art Center.
The Mentorship and Leadership Initiative is funded, in part, by MetLife Foundation, American Express, Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the NEA.
The National Theatre Project, a project of the New England Foundation for the Arts, is offering grants for the creation and touring of collaborative, devised projects. These grants are highly competitive and are awarded to approximately 6 projects annually. Grants generally range from $80,000 to $130,000.
Doris Duke has launched a new Artist Residency Program, designed to develop demand for jazz, theatre and/or contemporary dance (creative time or the creation of new work cannot be the primary residency goal).
This new initiative, part of a larger special $50 million allocation to the arts, will award $1,500,000 in grants in early 2013.
