Lively conversations with Caribbean Diaspora & Caribbean artists.
Seeded by a generous gift from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, with additional funding from the Seth Sprague Foundation and A.R.T./New York, the A.R.T./New York Relief Fund for NYC Small Theatres was created in response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and its impact on New York City-based small theatres.
Now, with the creation of the Leon Levy Foundation COVID Relief Fund, named to honor the Leon Levy Foundation’s vision and generosity, a 2021 round of accessible relief funding will be available to small theatres with annual budgets under $250k who are based in, or primarily produce in, New York City.
We are proud to announce that Conch Shell Productions is one of the recipients of the 2021 NYSCA-A.R.T./New York Creative Opportunity Fund! We were among the 46 recipients chosen in the fifth year of this Statewide Theatre Regrant Program which provides small theatres throughout NYS with funding to support our work.
