We are thrilled to announce that the Maine Arts Commission has awarded FST two grants for the coming year. (We’re also thrilled to announce that they still have enough funding to give grants!)
An Arts and Humanities Grant, issued jointly by the MAC and the Maine Humanities Council, will be used to support a tour of free performances of Four Quartets to libraries in Maine’s mid-coast region in 2018. There is still room for partnering libraries to join this tour. Please contact us if you would like more information.
MAC’s Arts Learning Grant will be used to support a community-wide educational residency in Eastport, Maine this winter in partnership with the Eastport Arts Center. FST artists will spend an intensive week with 7th & 8th grade students, adapting local tales into live shadow plays in the latest iteration of The Art of Memory: Stories from Eastport. During the week, our artists will spend two additional hours with every K-6 student in the district and offer a master class for adults. Stories from Eastport will be performed live for the entire community on Friday!
Please join us in thanking the Maine Arts Commission and Maine Humanities Council for generously supporting our work this season.
