LEVERAGING INVESTMENTS IN CREATIVITY
This ten year initiative to reinvent arts funding in the United States came to a close in 2013. I was commissioned to produce a series of short documentaries chronicling four of the grantees around the country: Urban Bush Women in Brooklyn, NY; The Nickelodeon Theater in Columbia, SC; the Montana Arts Council; and Los Cenzontles in San Pablo, CA.
The first and last videos in this six-part series explore the vision and premises of this groundbreaking project in cultural philanthropy.
