Grants Encourage Innovative Puppet Theater
Jim Henson Foundation
The Jim Henson Foundation awards grants for the creation and development of innovative, new works of live puppet theater in the United States. Project Grants of $5,000 are awarded for the development and production of new works ready to be presented in the coming year. Seed Grants of $2,000 are available for the development and workshopping of pieces in earlier stages of creation. The Foundation also offers Family Grants of $3,000 for new and innovative work specifically for children, families, and teenagers. Grants are provided to nonprofit organizations only; however, individual artists may apply through a fiscal sponsor. Letters of intent must be postmarked by March 16, 2015; full proposals must be postmarked by September 7, 2015. Visit the Foundation’s website to review the funding guidelines.
