From the LMDA blog:
The Literary Managers and Dramaturgs of the Americas (LMDA) is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2011 Residency Grant: Portland, Oregon, theatre company Hand2Mouth and dramaturg Kate Bredeson. LMDA offers a $2,000 stipend for a dramaturgical residency within a theater project, program and/or community that seeks an on-site dramaturgical presence but is unable to fund a dramaturg at this time. This round of grants saw fifteen applications, and the selection process was overseen by the Chair of LMDA’s Committee on Programs, Stephen Collela, along with committee members Joanna Falck and Diane Brewer. LMDA’s Residency program is designed to foster partnerships between dramaturgs and theater communities that will grow into strong, well-defined, ongoing dramaturgical relationships and positions within the world of theater at large.More on us and Kate here.
