TITAS Presents to Receive $15,000 Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts
Dallas – National Endowment for the Arts Acting Chairman Mary Anne Carter has approved more than $27 million in grants as part of the Arts Endowment’s first major funding announcement for fiscal year 2019. Included in this announcement is an Art Works grant of $15,000 to TITAS Presents to support the presentation of national and international dance and related education and engagement activities. Art Works is the Arts Endowment’s principal grantmaking program. The agency received 1,605 Art Works applications for this round of grantmaking and will award 972 grants in this category.
“The arts enhance our communities and our lives, and we look forward to seeing these projects take place throughout the country, giving Americans opportunities to learn, to create, to heal, and to celebrate,” said Mary Anne Carter, acting chairman of the National
Endowment for the Arts. “We are honored to be recognized by the NEA for the work we are doing here in North Texas” said Charles Santos, executive/artistic director. “TITAS celebrates the rich cultural diversity of our North Texas communities by bringing dance companies from around the world to Dallas. We are committed to raising the profile of Dallas as a cultural destination that honors the arts and celebrates the diversity.” Project artists include Pilobolus, Dorrance Dance, Beijing Dance Theater, and Ezralow Dance. While our full seasons reach 25,000 North Texans and national and international visitors, this NEA funded project will reach approximately 7,000. Visiting performing artists will lead a variety of education and engagement activities for students, adults, and families, including master classes, workshops, pre- and post-show discussions, student matinée performances, lecture demonstrations, and outdoor dance classes.
