$50,000

Grant funding will support The Theater Offensive’s QTPOC Artist Residency Program, a key program through which we serve Boston-area queer and trans artists and audiences of color and fulfill our mission -- to present liberating art by, for, and about queer and trans people of color that transcends artistic boundaries, celebrates cultural abundance, and dismantles oppression. Grant funds will also go towards paying teaching artists for TTO's True Colors: OUT Youth Theater program, and for the salaries of staff who plan and implement these programs. Finally, grant funding will defray rental costs for TTO’s offices -- a central hub for the planning of its artistic work-- and studio space.
