The Miracle Theatre Group, also known as Milagro, has received several grants to support its programs featuring Latino arts and culture, according to Sarah Kohler, development associate.
The Oregon Cultural Trust awarded a $15,600 grant to support the production of “American Night: The Ballad of Juan Jose,” a Mexican immigrant who lapses into a fever dream while studying for his U.S. citizenship exam. Milagro will take part in an important conversation about the values and changing demographics of the United States, Kohler said.
The theater received an award of $12,606 from Work for Art, a program of the Regional Arts & Culture Council. Milagro has strengthened the governance and fund-raising capacity of its board, revamped its fund-raising and information management systems and expanded local arts education.
Milagro received $10,000 from the Juan Young Trust to support its touring and arts education programming.
