“Being an emerging artist, the MCAF grant legitimized the project for the artists involved. It brought me to a new a level of professionalism with my company, because I was able to support a group of artists for the time they spent with me. This grant has given me the confidence to continue finding more funding opportunities for my future projects to help achieve my true vision.” —Jesca Prudencio,  LMCC Grant Recipient
