about this episode
Have you been working on a puppet show and are looking to take it to the next level? Are you hoping to premier your work in a formal theater space? Most importantly - do you need additional funding to make all of this happen? Then you're going to LOVE this conversation with z Briggs, Manager of The Jim Henson Foundation - the grant making institution with a mission of supporting excellence in puppetry.
We talk to z about about the process of submitting grants to the Foundation, discuss some best practices when drafting and assembling a visuals page, and find out about mis-steps you definitely will not want to take when submitting a letter of intent. If you're ever looking to apply for artist's grants for your puppet productions, you will NOT want to miss this info-packed conversation!
PLUS: look out for a future episode of Puppet Tears when we bring z back to talk about her own work as a puppeteer with Wonder Spark Puppetry, as Dalia monster on Sesame Street, and more!
