This is our third year offering this special space grant and we are delighted to open it up to Theater/Performance artists this year. The grant is designed to address some of the needs of artists who are trying to meet the challenges of being an artist and a parent to preschool age children. As an organization that has entered its third decade, BAX is intimately familiar with the joys and the difficulties of raising a family and creating and producing work.
Funding is provided, part by, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the New York State Council on the Arts and the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs.
The 2014 Parent/Artist Space Grant will be awarded to a total of two artists who are parents of preschool age (0-4) children, and are trying to meet the challenges of being an artist and a parent. One grant will be awarded to a choreographer and another to a Theater/Performance artist. In addition to a supportive environment to work in, BAX will provide 40 hours of free rehearsal space and a $300 childcare stipend. Rehearsal hours can be used at any time of the day, seven days a week, but please note there is more available space Monday - Friday 9am -3pm. Awarded rehearsal space will be used in any of our four rehearsal spaces located in the BAX BUILDING at 421 Fifth Avenue, Park Slope, Brooklyn. Participants will be asked to work closely with BAX staff to document the effectiveness of the grant, keep a diary and provide feedback to the program.
