The mission of New Horizon Theater is to bring to the greater Pittsburgh area consistent, high-quality cultural events reflecting African American points of view and to provide an ongoing venue for ethnic writers and performers to further their professional development. The impacts of COVID-19 made it difficult for the organization to secure reliable and consistent performance spaces. New Horizon Theater, Inc. will work with its board and the community to identify a rehearsal and performance space. This grant will go toward funding a paid position that will handle operational functions including marketing, maintaining contact with artists and playwrights, and audience outreach.
