Project Grants Are Back!

We are excited to formally announce our next round of theater project grants.

Manbites Dog Theater Company – through its Theater Fund – will be awarding grants this summer to encourage and support theater projects in the Triangle (Durham, Wake, Orange, and Chatham Counties) during the upcoming 2022-23 season. Triangle-based companies and artists are encouraged to apply.

Projects must take place, at least in part, between September 1, 2022 and June 30, 2023. Grant requests may range from $500 to $3,500, and must be matched 3-to-1 in the project budget (in other words, the grant request cannot exceed 25% of the project budget). 

Online applications begin Monday June 27, 2022. Deadline to apply is Wednesday July 27, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. Grant awards will be announced at the end of August.

What We’ve Been Doing

It’s been a minute! Our last call for project grants was in 2019-20. After the onset of the pandemic, we helped support Triangle grass-roots emergency artist relief funds, honored theater artists whose work reflected the goals of Durham social justice activist Ann Atwater, and awarded sustaining grants to artists whose ongoing initiatives strengthen the theater community.
