June 19, 2017 – (Becket, MA) Jacob’s Pillow Director Pamela Tatge recently unveiled Vision ’22, a strategic approach for the Pillow’s development over the next five years, through 2022. Vision ‘22 is a blueprint for enabling the Pillow to become a year-round center for dance creation and to more robustly serve artists and audiences alike. Jacob’s Pillow is America’s first and longest-running dance festival; as it celebrates its 85th anniversary this summer, the organization sets its sights on important future milestones.
“These new initiatives will enable Jacob’s Pillow to achieve our dreams of supporting the best dance artists of our time while powerfully connecting to audiences of all kinds,” said Tatge. “Vision ‘22 will help us strengthen our artistic core, boost our civic leadership and community involvement, and renew essential campus facilities. As a result, more outstanding artists will have time and support to make new work in this special place. In addition, more Berkshire community schoolchildren and residents will experience the power of dance, and our local, national, and international audiences will enjoy the benefits of a new studio and an upgraded Ted Shawn Theatre. New Vision ‘22 initiatives will also bring dance professionals, dance educators, and dance advocates to the Pillow to help them propel this essential art form’s future. This is a time of great promise for this historic institution that means so much to so many.”
