Our Renaissance Gyal Summer Series is made possible in major part by the Greater Hartford Arts Council through the fiscal sponsorship of HartBeat Ensemble. The project is also supported by the Connecticut Office of the Arts in partnership with MASS MoCA’s Assets for Artists program (A4A), the Richard P. Garmany Fund at Hartford Foundation for Public Giving via Connecticut Landmarks, and individual donations through supporters of our film screenings. The piece was created though the Free Center's Independent Artist Fund Grant in 2022, and it's continual development is funded in part by New England Foundation for the Arts’ New England Dance Fund, with generous support from the Aliad Fund at the Boston Foundation.
