Pig Iron Theatre Company will hire its first director of a new digital, film, and interactive initiative to lead the experimental theater company’s extension into digital content creation, bridging live performance and media-based artmaking while also generating alternative revenue sources. This initiative—in conjunction with an advisory group focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion—will establish channels of leadership and interdisciplinary collaboration for BIPOC artists as the company works to realize forward thinking and equitable artistic and business practices.

The total grant amount represents project funding plus an additional 20% in unrestricted general operating support.
