from the artistic director
We are delighted to announce that we have received a grant from the James and Diana Ramsay Foundation and the Sidney Myer Fund to support our core activities and capacity building initiatives. We have received $45,000 from their SA Capacity Building Program fund. The funding is spread over the 17/18 and 18/19 financial years. This funding will strengthen and build Restless Dance Theatre at a most crucial time of growth for the company.
There are exciting times ahead for Restless! Our company is growing, our activity is growing, the demand for our work is growing and this grant will provide the resources to help us respond appropriately. We want to take advantage of the significant acclaim that our new works are attracting and take our work to the world. What makes this funding particularly valuable is that it is not tied to any particular project. This means we will be able to promote our work much more widely and set up exciting projects nationally and internationally. Watch this space!
We would like to congratulate our fellow SA companies who also received support from this fund: Vitalstatistix, Fontanelle, isthisyours?, Insite Arts and Nexus Arts.
Thank you so much.
Michelle Ryan Artistic Director
