New 42nd Street, Inc./New Victory Theatre - 2008

Funded in March, 2008: $40000 for 1 years
The Dana Foundation grant enables The New Victory to expand its Professional Development Program for returning teaching artists to include opportunities to mentor, teach and lead their less experienced peers. At the same time, The New Vic will formalize its Basic Training Program for first-season TAs in order to provide them with the skills and resources necessary to work in the classroom along side their more experienced colleagues. This program will also be adapted and offered as the Basic Training Pilot Program to TAs at a community arts organization (currently identified as the Hunts Point Alliance for Children) as a first step toward wider dissemination.
