Yesterday I opened my mailbox to discover this envelope:
If you’ve ever applied for a grant I’m sure you’ve felt what I was feeling. A sharp intake of air, the pulse quickening, the simultaneous excitement and dread as you open the envelope, the release of the breath you were holding as you pull out the contents and discover the good or bad news.
In this case it was good news. We received the full amount we requested from the OAC’s Compass Program, which is extremely exciting given that it is such a highly competitive program. It means a lot for Evolution Theatre and gives us the opportunity to work with and receive some guidance from an amazing woman.
I’m grateful for the Compass Program, but even more grateful for the opportunity it allows us!
