EbzB Arts in Education Residencies and NC Arts Council Grants



EbzB Arts in Education Residencies and NC Arts Council Grants

EbzB Productions Arts in Education Residences are now available for the 2016-2017 school year.
Please share the following information.

The North Carolina Arts Council is offering Arts-In-Education Grants that may assist you in bringing an EbzB residency to your students. This program provides students with arts learning experiences that spark creativity, imagination, and innovation. These residency grants support artists working in schools or after school programs for 10 days or more. The NCAC Arts in Education (AIE) program provides support to schools and nonprofit organizations to strengthen the use of the arts in pre K-€“12 settings. It gives priority to funding fees for professional artists to work in educational settings and collaborations between arts organizations and schools.

EbzB Teaching Artists have been trained by The Lincoln Center Institute, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and the National Center For Creative Aging. Residencies and Workshops for students and professional development are tailored specifically to the needs of the school or district. EbzB is a professional touring theatre with an outstanding national reputation. Our teaching artists develop works to promote integrity, self-discovery and positive transformation of artists, audiences, individuals, and communities. We have offerings available for all grade levels which include direct connections to Common Core State and North Carolina Essential Standards.
