In 2019, SETC established the Betsey Horth Arts Administration Advancement Grant to support either individual theatre professionals or non-academic theatre organizations in developing, retuning, or expanding leadership and/or management skills or areas. As the espousal of artists is more-than-ever needed and the business of art continues to evolve, SETC encourages continuing education for Arts Administrators and the development of the organizations they lead. The stability and progress of an arts organization or project relies heavily on the competency and leadership of its administrative team and volunteer leadership such as a Board of Directors.

The Arts Administration Advancement Grant may be used by an individual who is either a seasoned professional looking for leadership development, specialized training, or skills improvement or an Arts Administration student wishing to expand their leadership/management experience outside of their regular course of study. The Grant may also be used by a non-academic theatre organization or service group to assist with hiring a newly graduated Arts Administration professional (position to be detailed and not an intern/apprentice) or for an organization that is looking to develop its staff and leadership as a group which might include training in fundraising, strategic planning, social media, governance, etc.

Award

  • One grant of $1,000 will be awarded to either an individual or non-academic theatre organization.
