The In Trust Center for Theological Schools has awarded St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary (SVOTS) a $10,000 matching grant for the Seminary’s Institute of Sacred Arts (ISA). The Seminary received the grant August 19, 2019.
The funds for the In Trust Center Resource Grant are supported by the Lilly Endowment, one of the world’s largest private philanthropic foundations.
The Seminary will use the grant over the next twelve months toward the purchase and installation of a suite of audio and video equipment for the production of educational materials for the classroom and online. These materials will be geared toward the study of sacred arts, both visual and musical, and made available for residential students, non-residential distance learners, artists, practitioners, and the general public.
The Resource Grant is the latest development in the ongoing implementation of a permanent Sacred Arts institute on campus. In January, SVOTS announced the ISA, with “creativity and holiness for the life of the world” as its mission, thanks to a $250,000 grant from the Henry Luce Foundation.
