Announcing February’s Window of Opportunity Grantees

Leeway’s Window of Opportunity (WOO) Grant launched this earlier this year as a six-month pilot program. Open to previous Leeway grantees only, the grant is meant to fund time-sensitive opportunities to support their art for social change practice. We are happy to announce February's WOO grantees:

Catherine Pancake (ACG '16) will prepare a rough cut of her feature film, Queer Genius, for a residency at the Wexner Center for the Arts.

Heidi Saman (LTA '09) will prepare her first feature film, Namour, for distribution by ARRAY and Netflix.

Pia Deas (ACG '16) has an opportunity to host an artists' roundtable at the Church of the Advocate in North Philadelphia on March 25, 2017 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Tentatively titled Power to the People: Celebrating The Black Imagination, this event will feature five Philadelphia artists speaking about their work, the importance of the Black imagination, and how it informs their art and their activism. 

Applications will be accepted from March through July on the 15th of every month. Learn more and apply online.
