Kaneland Foundation

$28,000

The Kaneland Arts Initiative (KAI) is currently in its 19th season of bringing professional Fine Arts to local schools in the Fox Valley community. The Dunham Fund is providing a $28,000 grant to help The Kaneland Foundation/Arts Initiative collaborate with artists in the Chicagoland area to bring art projects and programs into local schools.

In 2018/2019, The Kaneland Arts Initiative will partner with Chicago author Lindsay Currie to dramatize her new book, A Peculiar Incident on Shady Street. Through this partnership, students serve as playwrights, directors, and actors – learning the craft of theatre through hands-on participation in the entire process of dramatizing a work of literature and bringing it to life on stage.
