DCTS receives $1,750 grant

The DC Council on the Humanities has awarded a grant of $1,750 to DC Theatre Scene for website improvements.

“Thanks to the Council on the Humanities, our new site will have a fresh look, a more user-friendly navigation, and improved experience for visitors on mobile devices,” Editor and Publisher Lorraine Treanor said.

The $1,750 grant has been made as part of a one-to-one match. DCTS will provide the remainder of the $3,500 project cost through advertising revenues and private donations from readers.(See “the scene is looking for love.”)

Treanor and members of the DCTS staff are working with an outside developer on the new design, which DCTS hopes to debut in August, in time for the start of the new season.

“We have been wanting to do this project for quite a while, but, given the difficult economics of running a professional, advertising-dependent site, have never been able to accumulate the necessary funds. The Council on the Humanities has provided an invaluable service to us and to the arts in DC,” Treanor said, noting that in addition to DCTS, many local arts projects received help in the most recent round of funding.
