Taking a Break

We are not currently taking applications for grants. Over the summer we have been taking a short pause from grant making while we talk with area theater artists and supporters, reevaluate our granting processes and goals, and explore ways to better serve the needs of the Triangle theater community. Please check back in late September for more information and announcements.

What We’ve Been Doing

It’s been a minute! In 2018 Manbites Dog closed down its building and transitioned to its new mission. Our first round of 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.
