EmcArts Innovation Lab: Deadline Approaching!

Deadline approaching!

Innovation Lab applications due May 30

Applications to two more rounds of EmcArts‘ Innovation Labs, our 16-month-long immersion programs for performing arts and arts service organizations, are due on Friday, May 30.

Selected organizations will form a core Innovation Team, attend a 5-day residential retreat to accelerate their projects, and each receive $30,000 in change capital (plus $9,000 in unrestricted funds) to support the prototyping and evaluation of their strategies before fully launching them.

These programs are made possible with the generous support of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation (DDCF).

Who is eligible for the Innovation Lab?

Round 9 of the Innovation Lab for the Performing Arts is open to nonprofit producing and presenting organizations in theater, modern or contemporary dance, and jazz (including multidisciplinary college-based presenters). Download the RFP for Round 9.

Round 2 of the Innovation Lab for Arts Development Agencies is open to organizations that provide services in support of the ongoing development of an arts discipline, a particular area of arts activities, and/or its organizations and practitioners. These agencies must serve individuals or organizations in the disciplines of theater, modern and contemporary dance, jazz, or multidisciplinary arts. Download the RFP for Round 2.
