A $1 million grant will support the renovation of historic Zeiterion Theatre, the premier performing arts center for the Southcoast and a critical economic driver for downtown New Bedford. A grant of $525,000 was awarded to EdVestors to continue support for the Boston Public Schools Arts Expansion Initiative, a public-private funder collaborative that supports arts programming in schools, professional development for teaching artists, and youth workforce pathways in the arts.
