No Dream Deferred's
Even Now Fund
In response to the devastating impact of COVID-19 on theatre artists and especially Black, Indigenous, People of Color theatre artists, No Dream Deferred is honored to partner with Beaubourg Theatre in administering our No Dream Deferred...Even Now Fund. (NDDENF). Beginning in September 2020. We will be awarding a series of $500 micro-grants to New Orleans based Black Womxn Artists that will assist them in continuing their artistic practice during these tough economic times.
Additionally, we will be launching a Bill Pay Assistance Fund, that will provide $200 financial assistance to New Orleans based theatre-makers in need of resources for utility bills,food and/or healthcare.
Our goal is to assist our artists communities in remaining healthy and whole during the pandemic. Theatre makers play vital roles in our community as storytellers, healers, culture bearers and documentarians. BIPOC theater makers are often times, the least supported and most vulnerable to economic depression. While battling the pandemic, economic depression and the onslaught of police brutality and systemic racism, we seek to offer some respite, some support, some community care.
We invite you to join us by contributing to this fund. We can do this together. Make sure to subscribe to our newsletter to get updates on the NDDEN launch in September.
