Given the likely impact of COVID-19’s travel restrictions over the coming months, NET has reimagined our NET/TEN Spring 2020 Travel Grant funding round to meet the immediate challenges and unique opportunities of this moment, and respond to our members’ urgent needs and concerns.

The previously announced NET/TEN Spring 2020 Travel Grant application process (with March 24, 2020 deadline) has been suspended, and will be replaced with a one-time round of NET/TEN Spring 2020 Remote Connection Mini-Grants for distance-based relationship building.

A simple online application for this special round of Spring 2020 Remote Connection Mini-Grants is available now. Submissions will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis until the funding pool is depleted, with rapid-response award notification to applicants by email within 2-3 business days and payments disbursed by check (up to 30 days to receive) or Venmo/Paypal (up to 3 days to receive).

Mini-Grant amounts will be based on NET membership category: $250 for Individual and Student members; and $500 for Ensemble and Affiliate members.

COVID-19 RESOURCES

Over the last few weeks, NET has heard countless stories from our members of show cancellations, project interruptions, and financial uncertainty. The spread of COVID-19 and the need for physical distancing has made our collective work -- of bringing together communities through ensemble performance and practice -- extremely difficult. In this unsettling time, our social connections and the interwoven support and camaraderie provided by networks such as NET become even more critical. We encourage you to check out the following for resources and more in service of the ensemble theater community during this time:

COVID-19 VIRTUAL TOWN HALL, SATURDAY, MARCH 14

Thanks to all who joined us!
View an archived video recording of the session here.

As our communities manage the spread of COVID-19, and many limit non-essential travel, it's important to make sure the knowledge-sharing doesn't stop, and we take advantage of our technology tools to keep us connected.

While we had to cancel much of NET's EMFUSA2020 activity in Albuquerque during Tricklock's Revolutions festival (and the festival itself was also severely impacted - please see the company's statement on Facebook), we used our platform to host a Virtual Town Hall on March 14th, in partnership with Tricklock, to hear our community's concerns, and begin to assess where NET can be most supportive during this challenging time.
