May 2012 WomenArts Theatre & Film/Video Funding News

May 2012 Funding Newsletters

The WomenArts Funding Newsletters for May 2012 are now online. To read them, please click on the links below.

Deborah Steinberg, our Director of Artist Services, did a series of three articles in April about groups working for more opportunities for women in theatre.  Check out the WomenArts Blog to learn about the great work that is being done by the Female Playwrights Initiative in Los Angeles, 50/50 in 2020 in New York, and the Black Women Playwrights' Group in Washington, DC.



Please Note:  All programs specifically for women are now in red. Our newsletters place an emphasis on listings for women, people of color, and socially engaged artists. In addition to the newsletters above that list upcoming deadlines, we now have three pages on our website that list ongoing programs:  Ongoing Calls for Films & Videos, Ongoing Calls for Plays, and Ongoing Artist Residency Programs.  

If you miss an issue of our funding newsletters, you will always be able to find the two most recent newsletters posted in the News & Reviews section of our website at: www.WomenArts.org/news/index.htm#enews
