NEFA NTP 2022 Grants Recipients

Modeled after NEFA’s National Dance Project, NTP functions as a full system of support for devised theater, which in addition to funding, animates an informed, interactive network of producing theaters, presenters, and ensembles. Since the first round of NTP grants in 2010, NEFA has infused nearly $11 million into the field through the program. To date, 96 new theater works have been supported through Creation and Touring grants; touring of those works has reached 43 different states across the U.S. NTP projects have toured in-person and virtually to large and small arts presenters, military bases, universities, regional theaters, and festivals.

NW Arts Streaming Hub Narrative

Over the past 15 months The NW Arts Streaming Hub assisted dozens of community groups, individual artists, and local arts initiatives with technical expertise and consultation that has allowed them to share their work virtually. Live training were held for many artists on OBS through Producing in Pandemic. The NW Arts Streaming Hub supported more than 150 local artists through the website. They created some incredible community partnerships – like their work with The Vera Project developing and piloting a digital media production program for a dozen BIPOC youth. We were honored to be part of a project that centered racial equity, and was responsive and flexible to the evolving needs during one of the most challenging years many had ever faced. We’re proud that we were able to serve the Seattle and NW Arts community in a moment of peril.

Trek Table 2020

Trek Table is a weekly livestream ritual holding Trek Space for Black, Indigenous, Brown, Women of Color (Queer or otherwise) and their Allies. We gather with Trek heads, newbies, generational Star Trek families, and the sci-fi curious to explore, celebrate, and dive deep into Star Trek Discovery. Trek Table is a little like Sports Center meets a Quiz show, with lots of Improv and a sashay of Ru Paul’s Drag Race while sitting around the table having tea or a bowl of salad to hear women of color’s thoughts, opinions and insights on Star Trek Discovery. It’s a ritual. So we hold space. We breathe together. We laugh and sometimes, we have Star Trek fights – with our phasers set on stun.

Pacific Northwest Arts Group to Launch a “Netflix” for Local Performances

A new platform called Northwest Arts Streaming Hub (NASH) hopes to throw a life preserver to drowning Pacific Northwest artists and organizations by creating a central digital space where they can rebroadcast old work or stream live performances of new stuff for audiences.
Like a Netflix for local art, NASH plans to aggregate content from a bunch of PNW venues and performers through different channels on its website, which will “soft launch…as early as the end of next week,” according to Lily Raabe of the arts consulting firm Scandiuzzi Krebs, who helped organize the artists.
