Artistic Initiative Fund

The Utah Shakespearean Festival's newest fund was established to enhance the artistic excellence of all Festival productions.


An Artistic Initiative Fund was recently established at the Utah Shakespearean Festival. The new fund was initiated in conjunction with the announcement of David Ivers and Brian Vaughn as the new artistic leadership of the Festival. Created to promote the Utah Shakespearean Festival’s growth in artistic excellence, the fund consists of three major components:

  1. Establish and identify a core group of actors, directors, and designers who regularly appear on and off our stages.

  2. Utilize resources from the fund to support, enhance, and increase the size and scope of our production design aesthetic.

  3. Increase the Utah Shakespearean Festival’s national and international exposure and profile; this includes attending national conferences, utilizing new technology to support our marketing strategies, and exploring outreach and touring opportunities.

The fund has secured a lead-off gift from singer/songwriter Michael McLean, whose Forgotten Carols tour will donate an evening of proceeds to the Utah Shakespearean Festival. Check back for the December tour date.

The target goal of the Artistic Initiative Fund is $250,000 by 2013.
