Stagesource ASL Arts Access Application
StageSource (www.stagesource.org) has been given the privilege of facilitating a discreet amount of funds that have been earmarked to support ASL Interpreted shows and ASL access related programming for small/fringe companies with budgets under $150,000 a year. Some of this funding was through the Forrest Foundation and The Bob Jolly Charitable Trust, and we are grateful for their support. The first round of funding will be for the 2017-2018 season, and the grant deadline is June 30, 2017. You must be a member of StageSource to apply for this grant.

The application questions below have been derived from standards gleaned from the Designing for Accessibility Guidebook* as produced by the National Endowment for the Arts.

Further input has been received from our partners at Boston University Disability Services, Wheelock Family Theatre, Accessible Theatre Project and the ASL Coaches that work with them.
