Excited to Receive a National Endowment for the Arts Grant to support our 10th Anniversary Season

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Chairman Jane Chu announced this month that Kate Weare Company is one of 919 nonprofit organizations nationwide to receive an NEA Art Works grant. Kate Weare Company is recommended for a $10,000 grant to support its 10th Anniversary Season.

Funds will be used to support the restaging and presentation of dance works by Kate Weare and collaborators in honor of the Company’s tenth anniversary. Funds will also support Unstruck, that will premiere at the Company’s home season at BAM in February 2015 and performed throughout 2015.

NEA Chairman Jane Chu said, "I'm pleased to be able to share the news of our support through Art Works including the award to Kate Weare Company. The arts foster value, connection, creativity and innovation for the American people and these recommended grants demonstrate those attributes and affirm that the arts are part of our everyday lives."

Art Works grants support the creation of art, public engagement with art, lifelong learning in the arts, and enhancement of the livability of communities through the arts. The NEA received 1,474 eligible applications under the Art Works category, requesting more than $75 million in funding. Of those applications, 919 are recommended for grants for a total of $26.6 million.
