Washington Performing Arts Society - 2003

Funded in March, 2003: $35000 for 1 years
The Dana Foundation grant will support the launch of a pilot Professional Development Institute for approximately thirty-five local DC artists in the Embassy Adoption Program, in association with the DC Public Schools. The program seeks to tie cultural and arts education with daily classroom instruction. Dana funding will underwrite instruction for performing artists in teaching skills that will allow them to connect the arts, social studies, world cultures, and other content areas of the Embassy Adoption Program.
