TILT Performance Group Receives Second $10,000 Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts
Austin—TILT Performance Group of Austin has received a $10,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts as part of NEA's first major funding announcement for fiscal year 2018.
"As a theatre company made up of adults with disabilities, TILT is thrilled to receive this grant from the NEA in support of our next production,” according to Executive Director, Gail Dalrymple. Back/Stage is an original play to be directed by Broadway veteran and Juilliard graduate Nick Mayo,” she added.
NEA’s Challenge America grants support projects that extend the reach of the arts to underserved populations—those whose opportunities to experience the arts are limited by geography, ethnicity, economics, or disability.
"TILT appreciates that the NEA recognizes the importance of connecting the community of those with a disability to the Arts in America,” said TILT Board President Tamara Harper Shetron.
“The National Endowment for the Arts believes that all people should have access to the joy, opportunities, and connections the arts bring,” says NEA Chairman Jane Chu.
