Emerging Artist Program

A longtime dream of the Renaissance was realized this past year with the creation of the Emerging Artist Program at Theatre 166.  Under the direction of and created by Artistic Director Michael Thomas, the goal of the program is to guide, encourage, support and advocate for artists of all ages who wish to find their own voice through the creation of original work. By establishing an environment that promotes the importance of self-expression, risk-taking and collaboration, the Theatre 166 Emerging Artists Program is designed to foster and translate an artist’s creative thinking into smart, vital, and thought-provoking new works. In November of 2020, the Renaissance was informed that they had received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, recognizing the importance of the Emerging Artist Program and generously funding it. This is the first time the Renaissance has received such a prestigious award from the NEA.
