Their project, The SH.I.T. List is our first recipient of our Community Resource Grant. They received $5,000 (or 100,000 nickels!) to make their project a reality.
The S.H.I.T. List is a web-based database that independent theater companies in and around NYC can use to sell, rent, lend or swap basic set pieces, furniture, props and costumes. Community resource: Most small theater companies in New York City lack storage space, so set pieces and props hit the dumpster after a show closes. The S.H.I.T. List is a low-cost solution for reducing waste, lowering design costs, and moving small theater companies toward a greener process.

Thank you to all of the participants that submitted proposals. It was a very exciting process.
