Areas of Support


Actors Theatre of Louisville

Actors Theatre’s Education Programming enriches the lives of young people by giving them powerful tools like critical thinking, the ability to collaborate with others, self-confidence and problem-solving skills.  Not only do these skills help these students be successful in their own pursuits, according to the US Department of Labor, they are essential to the workforce of the 21st Century.

ArtsMatch, a pilot initiative of the Fund for the Arts, expands the capacity of Cultural Providers (i.e., artists, cultural groups, organizations) to create special arts-based projects to reach new audiences and invest in innovation.
