Doris Duke Foundation Announces Major New Arts Funding Initiative

“At a time when the lingering recession has rocked the larger arts community, individual artists have lost essential financial support from both the public and private sector. Duke hopes to fill some of that gap. The program will award 200 individual artists from the fields of contemporary dance, jazz and theatre multi-year cash awards of as much as $275,000. Individuals will be selected through an anonymous peer-review process, not through applications.”
