Vanguard Arts Fund for Theatre Projects
Friday, May 12, 2023
Olney, Maryland, USA
The Vanguard Arts Fund provides development support to diverse teams of artists interested in creating works—especially works that cross artistic disciplines—in a collaborative environment. From the seed of an idea for a new play, to a concept for a classic adaptation, to a first draft or first song of a musical, the Fund provides intensive workshop time at various stages of the development process. They are committed to ensuring the majority of projects we fund are led by BIPOC generative artists, and intend to support at least one BIPOC-created musical each year.
Olney Theater will Provide:
-Up to one week of workshop space
-$900 per week for generative artists; all other artists are paid/contracted as required with union agreements
-For out-of-town artists: Travel and housing with common kitchen.
-Rehearsal room or one of three stages for up to one week (possible off-site space as well)
-Olney Theatre staff support for casting and other personnel procurement (casting, tech, personnel, musicians, etc.) as needed
-Shared vehicles and gas paid by theater
Only artists based in the United States will be considered.
