MABEL P. ROBINSON
EMERGING ARTIST AWARDS
The Mabel P. Robinson Emerging Artist Awards will present six scholarships to acting, directing, and design students to attend the 2024 International Black Theatre Festival (IBTF). Students will be presented with VIP passes to festival productions, the opportunity to network with Black Theatre Royalty and industry veterans, and be honored at the IBTF Opening Night Gala on Monday July 29, 2024.
To level the playing field, there will be no application fees, auditions/application materials will be submitted virtually, and travel/housing/per diems will be provided, assuring no student’s exclusion due to financial constraints.
The awards are named in honor of Mabel P. Robinson, a Broadway/Television/Film veteran, educator, and former Artistic Director of NC Black Rep.
