Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company, a national leader in the creation of innovative theatre, is launching a transformative fellowship program in partnership and with a lead gift from the Miranda Family Fund, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s family philanthropic fund. This ambitious new program is designed to provide talented candidates from historically excluded communities, especially Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, with the resources and training necessary to build their careers as arts administrators or theatre technicians. Each fellowship is structured as a paid year-long department-specific position with benefits (including health insurance), and a housing stipend. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the inaugural fellowships will take place over one and a half years and begin as remote positions in Winter 2021.
The Miranda Family Fellows Program will compensate fellows with a full-time salary plus providing a housing stipend of $800/mo, and health care benefits. Through this exciting model, Woolly Mammoth and the Miranda Family Fund are shining a light on the need for greater equity, diversity, inclusion, and access behind the scenes in the American theatre, and creating a new point of entry into the field for the next generation of arts leaders.
Alongside the opportunity to be embedded in the organization, participants will also receive ongoing professional development opportunities. While we ultimately seek to expand these fellowships to all Woolly Mammoth Departments, the inaugural cohort of Miranda Family Fellowships will be available in the Connectivity, New Work, and Production Departments.
