For its first round of funding in fiscal year 2021, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) has announced over $27.5 million in awards supporting 14 artistic disciplines in communities across the United States. The Barclay is thrilled to announce that we have also received a generous award of $20,000 to support the theatre's 2021 Dance and Movement Portfolio!
We are deeply honored by the NEA’s recognition of the Barclay’s legacy of bringing extraordinary dance and movement performances to our community. During a year of such uncertainty and challenges for the arts, this grant will go far in helping us safely and creatively present the type of programming you've come to know and love.
NEA Acting Chairman Ann Eilers said, “These projects represent the vitality and perseverance of arts organizations small and large to overcome significant challenges, transform to new ways of engagement, and forge new relationships that benefit the diverse populations in neighborhoods and cities throughout the United States.”
