On Monday, December 1st, The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation (DDCF) announced that 14 performing arts organizations including The American Theatre Wing will receive grants for national projects that hold the potential to advance the overall health of the jazz, contemporary, dance, theatre and presenting fields.
We at the American Theatre Wing are so grateful to receive this grant and plan on using the funds to create an interactive digital media hub for theatre. This will include working with theaters across America to share educational media content and engaging with a national audience through various digital platforms.
