MRAC supports ADT's 2020 production of Āgun
The Metro Regional Arts Council (MRAC), based in St. Paul, Minnesota, has awarded $806,429 to 84 organizations/projects in the first round of its FY 2020 Arts Project Support grant program. The MRAC board approved the grants at its Oct. 22, 2019 meeting.
Projects included funding for Ananya Dance Theatre’s Āgun, for which choreographer Ananya Chatterjea and her team of collaborators will create a full-length, original dance theater work for premiere at The O’Shaughnessy at St. Catherine University in St. Paul during September 2020.
The 84 funded projects will provide arts events and programs for Minnesotans of all ages to experience and enjoy arts in a variety of disciplines and at venues across the region. From theater productions to camps to classes and more, the Arts Project Support grants provide quality engagement with the arts at a variety of entry points.
The Arts Project Support grant program is made possible with funds from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund of the Legacy Amendment.
