Doris Duke Charitable Foundation Names Creative Inflections Grant Recipients

The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation has announced nearly $1 million in grant funding through its Creative Inflections program, a first-of-its-kind initiative to support leading jazz artists and presenting organizations in innovative collaborations that enable artists to take creative risks and expand the genre’s listenership by attracting younger and more diverse audiences.

Each grant of up to $200,000 supports alliances between the selected artists and institutions to explore novel, interdisciplinary approaches to the way that jazz can be delivered to the next generation of audiences. The Creative Inflections program works to position jazz artists and presenting institutions as equal partners, support risk-taking by both artists and presenters, and cultivate audiences of millennials as jazz consumers.
