Are you a self-producing dance artist? Would you like to present your work at ODC Theater?

Come learn about the ins and outs of applying for the Rainin Opportunity Fund at ODC Theater. This informative session will be used to answer such questions as – What is the Rainin Opportunity Fund? Am I eligible and how do I apply? How and when is it available?

ODC Theater has partnered with the Kenneth Rainin Foundation to create an eponymous opportunity fund at ODC to support self-producing artists through its open access rental program. The Rainin Foundation has made a commitment of $20,000 per year for three years to support the administration of scholarship subsidies to self-producing artists on ODC Theater’s main stage.

Up to five artists will be awarded a scholarship to self-produce/rent ODC’s B. Way Theater for the 2017/18 season. Applications will be considered and scored by a panel, and the awarded artists will receive a subsidized rental week in the theater. Subsidy scholarships will cover a minimum of 50% of the production space and labor costs for the artists.
