AGE will be accepting Letters of Inquiry (LOIs) for the 2023 grant cycle. This will provide an opportunity for all applicants to introduce themselves and their work. Accepted applicants will be invited to submit a full application in June 2023. AGE is committed to curating the AGE Legacy Playwright grants program within the limits of our resources. Therefore, we will only be accepting the first 100 LOIs.
We acknowledge and honor that any selection process is subjective and imperfect. We will work with this in mind and do our best to mitigate any bias or harm. Applicants will be reviewed on their motivation, commitment, and dedication as a playwright to impact the equity landscape of American theatre. Applicants may also be adjudicated on their body of work, and potential for lasting impact in the theatre industry. We hope to amplify emerging artists who have a clearly defined sense of self as a theatremaker. We recognize that all applicants, despite varying years of training and/or experience, are all still in the process of honing their skill, learning new things, and working toward mastery. We also recognize that mastery is defined by whatever the definition is for them and their journey.
“AGE wants to be curative and healing in our relationship with grant recipients. That means respecting our recipients’ dignity and judgment in using the funds towards realizing their goals. We are giving fully and freely, knowing that our recipients will make the world a better place. Together, we are doing something that seldom happens in a world still struggling to find pathways to equity.” -Jane Mantiri, AGE Founder
