Actors' Fund of America
Funded in March, 2006: $40000 for 2 years
With Dana Foundation funding, the Actor's Fund will export its five year-old New York City teaching artist training course, the Actors' Work Program, to Los Angeles. While structurally the program will mirror its New York activities, it will be customized to the needs of the LA arts education community. Goals of the project include increasing opportunities for LA performing artists to become teaching artists, providing a new training and referral source for the LA arts in education community and establishing new organizational partnerships.
