It is with great delight and pride that we share the news that the International Society for the Performing Arts (ISPA) will receive a $15,000 award from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) in support of its New York 2016 ISPA Congress. Through its grant-making to thousands of nonprofits each year, the NEA promotes opportunities for people in communities across the United States to experience the arts and exercise their creativity. The NEA will make 1,023 awards totaling $74.3 million nationwide in this funding round.
NEA Chairman Jane Chu said, “The NEA is committed to advancing learning, fueling creativity, and celebrating the arts in cities and towns across the United States. Funding these new projects like the one from ISPA represents an investment in both local communities and our nation’s creative vitality.”
Chief Executive Officer, David Baile commented that “This support from the NEA is a strong acknowledgment of the role ISPA plays in supporting the infrastructure of the performing arts, not only in the United States but internationally. The NEA joins five other arts councils from different regions of the world supporting ISPA’s mission.”
