Grant Initiatives

Kentucky Shakespeare educational opportunities can be funded through a number of grants, including the following.

Fund for the Arts 5×5 

The Fund for the Arts 5×5 is an extended arts engagement initiative that links students, their families and Fund for the Arts cultural partners. This program works with schools in Jefferson County to provide a continuum of arts exposure—at least five arts/cultural experiences—by the completion of the fifth grade for students in 5×5 schools. Students in participating schools will be introduced to the arts through field trips and in-school experiences.

For more information about the 5×5 program, please contact Kristin Wingfield with Fund for the Arts at 502.582.0100.
