UNC Chapel Hill Awards "Zara" Artists PASAF Grant

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (September 27, 2018) - The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill announced recipients of the Performing Arts Special Activites Fund grant for on campus programming in 2018-2019. “Zara” creators Andrew Aghapour and Ashley Melzer, in collaboration with Professor Michelle Robinson of American Studies Department, were awarded funs to pursue on campus performance, workshops and class visits in the spring semester.

The PASAF supports projects and activities that provide quality performing arts that enhance the creative and cultural environment of our University community and have significant impact on life and learning at UNC. PASAF Projects are supported in all areas of the performing arts.  Priority is given to new and innovative projects.  Projects that involve multiple units (departments, centers, curricula, programs, etc.) and that are inter-disciplinary are encouraged.  We also encourage faculty and staff from all areas of the University to submit applications for projects that include a component of the performing arts in any area of teaching, research, or service.
