Jennifer Monson is among 20 artists who received the Doris Duke Impact Award. In its inaugural year, these dance, theatre, and jazz artists are the first to receive this award. Each recipient of a Doris Duke Impact Award receives $80,000–including an unrestricted, multi-year cash grant of $60,000, plus as much as $10,000 more in targeted support for audience development and as much as $10,000 more personal reserves or creative exploration during what are usually retirement years for most Americans. Doris Duke Impact Award recipients have the opportunity to participate in professional development activities, financial and legal counseling, and regional gatherings through Creative Capital, DDCF’s primary partner in the Doris Duke Performing Artist Awards.
Jennifer is thrilled to be a Doris Duke Impact Awardee and is grateful for this support that will allow her to continue making work that generates knowledge and meaning through movement.
