NEW YORK, NY, April 22, 2014 — The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation (DDCF) announced today the first-ever recipients of the Doris Duke Impact Awards and the third group of individuals to receive Doris Duke Artist Awards. Both awards are part of the Doris Duke Performing Artist Awards, a special, ten-year initiative of the foundation to empower, invest in and celebrate artists by offering flexible, mult-year funding in response to financial challenges that are specific to the performing arts. Doris Duke Artist Award recipients receive $275,000, and Doris Duke Impact Award recipients receive $80,000. Since commencing in April 2012, the program has awarded a total of $18.1 million to artists in the fields of jazz, dance and theatre.

Among the 2014 award recipients are these artists who have received subsidies from the National Performance Network during their careers.  NPN applauds the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation for its generous, ongoing support of its own programs and the recognition these awards gives to artists who contribute to the diverse artistic practice of the performing arts in the United States.
