Project Tool is supported by the Joyce Award (2018) and 2016 Chicago Dancemakers Forum Lab Artist (2016) as well as a National Performance Network (NPN) Creation Fund Project co-commissioned by Links Hall in partnership with Dancing Grounds and NPN. Development of Project Tool was supported by a Ragdale Foundation residency, NPN Development Fund supported residency at Dancing Grounds, and a Rebuild Foundation residency at Dorchester Art + Housing Collaborative. Completion of the floors was made possible by Sweet Water Foundation. This project was also partially supported by an Individual Artist Program Grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events, as well as a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency, a state agency through federal funds provided by the National Endowment for the Arts. Finally, this project was made possible through a grant from 3Arts that matched funds by 67 donors to 3AP (3Arts Projects).
