GRANT OPPORTUNITY: Shakespeare in American Communities from the National Endowment for the Arts

Deadline: 03-08-2012


The National Endowment for the Arts is a public agency established by Congress in 1965 to help support excellence in the arts, both new and established, by bringing the arts to all Americans and by providing leadership in arts education.


In particular, the Shakespeare in American Communities program is a national theater initiative sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts in cooperation with Arts Midwest aimed at providing high quality, professional theater productions of Shakespeare plays and related educational activities to under-served high schools and middle schools throughout the country. In addition to performances, activities include artistic and technical workshops, symposia about the productions, and educational programs in local schools. In 2008-2009, 40 theater companies participated in the program and received grants to help support performances and educational activities in their communities, states, or regions for students.
