Arts Organization Grants
Director Kathleen Spehar and Deputy Director Ross Willits were award $80, 000 by the Jerome Foundation to support Momentum: New Dance Works 2018-2019. Momentum: New Dance Works is a two-part program for dance innovators providing commissioning awards, professional development mentorship, and creative process exchanges, which culminate in a critically acclaimed dance festival. Momentum is singular in Minnesota as the only forum for contemporary emerging dance to be presented at a professional scale. The program positions the commissioned artists (four choreographers/collaboratives per cycle) for national opportunities and emboldens their artistic voices for a lifetime. The O’Shaughnessy will be hosting the program for the 2018-2019 year.
