Grants of $25,000 to USA nonprofit professional theater companies for performances and educational activities for students. Interested applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full proposal. Funding is intended to support programs that give middle and high school students the opportunity to experience the works of Shakespeare.
Arts Midwest invites proposals from professional theater companies across the nation to perform an in-person, socially-distanced, or virtual performance by professional actors of a play by Shakespeare; an adaptation of Shakespeare’s text; or a production that incorporates scenes, monologues, and/or sonnets of Shakespeare that is relevant to today, and conduct related educational activities for students that further explores and addresses Shakespeare’s work in modern context by partnering with five or more middle and/or high schools.
Things to keep in mind:
Flexibility due to COVID Response: It is understood that this proposal is what the company envisions to provide for schools and students during the related programming period. As the field and education moves forward through recovery, Arts Midwest understands that future considerations of the safety of actors, teaching artists, or students and the ability for schools to permit teaching artists/actors in the classroom or to take field trips could vary throughout the nation.
