Theatre Direct is gearing up to launch the next phase of Balancing Act. This winter we will unveil a national initiative that will unite artist caregivers across the country and offer practical strategies of support to participating arts organizations. To find out more, join our Balancing Act mailing list, or to get involved e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime, many artists with caregiving responsibilities have lost gigs and been laid off, while also tasked with feeding, housing, teaching and protecting the most vulnerable in our community. In 2020 Theatre Direct raised over $5000 and sent twenty $250 grocery gift cards to artist families in need. The crisis is ongoing and the situation for many artists caregivers the situation has gotten worse. We have a waiting list of families who need financial support right now. Please donate if you can! A tax receipt will be issued for all donations over $20.
