The Jim Henson Foundation seeks applications for its puppet theater grant programs.
Each year, grants are awarded for the creation and development of innovative works of puppet theater. Production Grants are awarded for the production of new works ready to be presented in the coming year.
Workshop Grants are for the development and workshopping of these pieces.Workshop Grants and Production Grants can be combined over a two-year period for the greatest benefit to the piece; keep in mind, however, that a Production Grant does not need to be preceded by a Workshop grant and a Workshop Grant in no way ensures a future Production Grant.
Family Grants fund the development of new and innovative work specifically for children, families and teenagers. Grants are made only for the development of new works of live puppet theater.
