ABOUT ARTIST/ORG/BUSINESS:

DOUBLE EDGE THEATRE, an artist-run organization, was founded in 1982 by Stacy Klein. The ensemble applies vigorous physical training and the principle of an artist’s autonomy to create work intimately woven with the community. In 1994, Double Edge moved from Boston to a 105-acre former dairy farm in rural Ashfield, MA, to create a sustainable artistic home. In 1996 Argentine actor, puppeteer Carlos Uriona joined DE and wove into the ensemble his community-based street theatre. Today, the Farm has become an International Center of Living Culture, including performance, international touring and artist collaboration, year-round theatre training, conversations, convenings, greening and farming initiatives, and a popular indoor-outdoor traveling spectacle which takes place alongside the hills, pastures, river, and gardens of the Center. Double Edge Theatre is committed to art justice and equity for all people in the workplace and, aligned with its current scholarship programs encourages applications from Native American, African American and Latinx communities.

FELLOWSHIP DESCRIPTION:

This one-year position is 20-30 hours a week devoted to supporting the fundraising, advocacy, and research around funding opportunities from private foundations, corporations, and government grants. The Grants Fellow assists in writing narrative drafts and all aspects of developing full proposals (i.e., budgets, work samples, and support materials). Grants content ranges from artistic creation and touring to art justice, community development, international exchange, education, and sustainability.

Candidates should have some experience and be eager to learn more about fundraising and case-making through grants and the impact of arts and culture on community and society at large. We are seeking recent graduates, post-graduates and emerging professionals in the field. The ideal candidate has excellent writing and interpersonal skills, be highly organized, hard-working, and can work independently on multiple projects. Compensation includes a $750-1,000/month stipend and housing.
