Unique Funding Programs for Theatre Artists, Educators & Scholars
As the ongoing recession is affecting everyone – especially theatre arts & education programs – money is short. No one understands that more than we do here at AATE.
This is why our Board has championed the creation of ways to support our members during these tough times. We’ve also located some unique funding programs outside of our own organizations to help support the herculean efforts of our country’s most talented theatre artists & educators. You.
Have a look. It’s worth a peek. Maybe there’s a fit.
