The Spokane Shakespeare Society's Amanda Cantrell talks about SAGA funding and their 2022 season.

Amanda Cantrell, Executive Director of the Spokane Shakespeare Society, sits down with E.J. Iannelli to chat about the funding her group recently received as part of the Spokane Arts Grant Awards (SAGA).

The Spokane Shakespeare Society, or S3, was one of nine successful applicants during SAGA's second funding round of 2022. Among other things the grant will help S3 bring its outdoor performances into more parks around the city.

SAGA is an annual competitive grant process administered by Spokane Arts. It’s on track this year to allocate nearly $150,000 in financial support directly to artists and organizations.
