SPONSOR BENEFITS AND PRIVILEGES

The Artist Housing and Travel Fund began in 2022. Board Member Mary McGrane recognized that one of the logistical hurdles for Chamber Dance Project was finding affordable, convenient, clean, and comfortable housing for our artists and creative team. While brainstorming for a solution, the Artist Housing and Travel Fund was born. In its inaugural year, the fund raised over $17,000 which went went towards the housing and travel expenses for artists involved in the 2022 season, Gravity, Grace and Gatsby and facilitated Chamber Dance Project’s relationship with Sonesta Suites. For as little as $100, you can become a sponsor of the Artist Housing and Travel fund. Benefits of being sponsoring the Artist Housing and Travel Fund parallel our member benefits outlined below.

Sponsors contribute $100 or more annually.
