On Wednesday, November 19, The Wallace Foundation announced that Teatro ZinZanni/One Reel was one of nine recipients of a four-year Wallace Excellence Award grant. The Wallace Excellence Awards were created to support exemplary arts organizations to pioneer effective practices to engage more people in high-value arts activities.
Teatro ZinZanni will use The Wallace Excellence Award to fully develop its ZinZanni Institute for Circus Arts (ZICA) which was launched last spring. 2008’s test program, Camp ZinZanni, was the first program to roll out under the ZICA name. Learn more about ZICA and The Wallace Foundation here.
Along with the announcement from The Wallace Foundation, Teatro ZinZanni launched a new web site for the Instute: http://zica.zinzanni.org. This web site will be updated throughout the year with information on upcoming camps, workshops and master classes as well as information on internships and apprenticeships as information becomes available.
