Profiles of Round One Grantees

Below are profiles of select grantees funded by EDA in Round One. Learn about:

  • the questions and themes that these projects address, which can be applied to other organizations and contexts in the dance field
  • what these projects entailed, including activities and goals
  • research that was conducted to begin to test the degree to which projects engaged audiences
  • what grantees learned along the way and
  • the products they’ve produced to share the learning, so that the dance field can consider adapting elements that might work for them.
