APAP Arts Forward Grant Announcement and Press Release.
We are honored to share that the Alabama Dance Council and Wideman Davis Dance have received an APAP ArtsForward grant of $50,000 to support collaboration with Selma partners for Migratuse Reimagined!
This grant from the Association of Performing Arts Professionals (APAP ArtsForward) supports the performing arts field’s safe, vibrant, and equitable reopening and recovery. Through the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, APAP ArtsForward awarded $2.065 million to 47 partnerships between presenting organizations and artists.
The Migratuse Reimagined project will take place in Selma, Alabama, with multiple site visits to continue the artists’ and presenter’s practice of working deeply in community with local community partners. These include the Blackbelt Community Foundation and Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation partnership, the National Voting Rights Museum, journeysforthesoul.com, By the River Center for Humanity, and ArtsRevive. Community engagement will involve virtual and in-person components to build relationships culminating with outdoor performances at three different sites.
