Introducing the Grantees: The Innovation Lab for the Performing Arts Round 8
The organizations will be examining four different adaptive challenges:
- Northrop: How can we transform our revitalized facility into a hub of interdisciplinary creativity and innovation at the University of Minnesota that dynamically engages students, faculty, researchers, artists, and the greated community?
- PICA: In considering our ongoing model of using temporary, pop-up spaces and alternative venues to site work in spaces appropriate to artists' needs, how can we challenge our assumptions about the value of this model? How can we preserve our practice's core values while reshaping it?
- Redmoon: How can we cultivate a well-trained community of collaborators to build the next generation of artists, and invest in individuals in the long-term by scaffolding training from intern to apprentice, apprentice to collaborator, and from collaborator to peer artist?
- TTO: What is the impact of our newly formed Pride Youth Theater Alliance (PYTA) -- a strategic alliance supporting and encouraging Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) youth theater in North America? How will this new model affect TTO's work locally as it takes on this new initiative on an international scale?
We believe it’s helpful for the field to learn a bit about the range of projects which were proposed. As part of the application process, we ask everyone to write a short summary of their project. What follows is each applicant’s submission.
