Jeff Casazza

Creative Renewal Arts Fellow - In 1999, the Arts Council of Indianapolis, with generous support from the Lilly Endowment, established the Creative Renewal Arts Fellowship program. Originally conceived as a renewal opportunity similar to an academic sabbatical, this groundbreaking initiative offers mid-career artists and arts administrators the opportunity to renew and refresh their creativity. In it's 9th round, the fellowship offers 30 artists and arts administrators $10,000 for an 18 month fellowship period.

Casazza’s interests vary from classical to contemporary pieces. With a distinct vision for each production he directs, his design and rehearsal process is intensely collaborative. As a playwright his plays have been produced in Indiana, California, Florida, and Chicago.
