Ovation, America’s only arts network, is partnering with Comcast as part of their Stand for the Arts campaign. Through this collaboration, they will recognize arts and cultural organizations in Comcast markets.
Ovation EVP John Malin said, "The Stand for the Arts Awards program was established to provide financial awards to innovative arts organizations and programs that are creating inclusive access to artistic programming, arts education, and skills development. For 2018, Ovation is excited to bring Comcast aboard to acknowledge outstanding arts organizations in their markets."
The campaign launched at the Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Plaza in Chicago, where they celebrated Collaboraction, an organization that uses the arts for social change. Following the award presentation, they held an arts education panel and a live taping of Broadway in Chicago Backstage.
Comcast Regional Senior Vice President offered his congratulations to the organization stating, “Collaboraction has a long history of calling attention to important issues impacting the Chicago area, and we hope this award will help the organization continue to deliver on its important mission."
Stand for the Arts is an arts advocacy campaign that has donated more than $15 million to organizations across the country, focusing on artistic placemaking, STEAM education, and the Creative Economy.
