Dance Theater Workshop is awarded $75K from Robert Sterling Clark Foundation
DANCE THEATER WORKSHOP was awarded $75K from Robert Sterling Clark Foundation to expand The Suitcase Fund: A Project of Ideas and Means in Cross-Cultural Artist Relations into the Middle East and Africa. Founded in 1985 The Suitcase Fund seeks to:
· Facilitate access to other cultures by providing artists with opportunities to research, create or disseminate their work;
· Encourage practical relations and increased avenues of opportunity among the world’s diverse artists and the communities they serve; and,
· Foster a broader social and political context for the global communication of cultural ideas.
Since 1990 with generous support from the Trust for Mutual Understanding, The Suitcase Fund has been actively involved in Eastern Europe. The support of the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation will allow Dance Theater Workshop to begin to expand the reach of this program to the Middle East and Africa specifically, Mali, Lebanon and Senegal.
