DIANE FRAHER received support for The Reawakening, a character-driven dramatic feature film on contemporary Native American tradition and culture, based on the themes of personal redemption and the power of love. The Reawakening is a contemporary story set in the corporate legal world. It is an action story depicting prison life in a very racially corrupt prison bureaucracy. It is also a story of personal redemption. How can an "urban" Indian balance an affluent life style with the traditional ways of his Native background? The Reawakening portrays the struggle for personal redemption through a return to traditional Native American spiritual values, the love of family, childhood friends and the elders of the Nation.

Support was awarded to RAMON ALBERTO NUEZ for Concrete Jungles: The True Story of Street Kids in America, a feature-length documentary that looks at the unsettling story of street kids (homeless, runaway, at-risk and outcast) in America. It will examine the invisibility in a largely apathetic society. It will also look at youth outreach programs, what they do, their importance to kids in need, and their struggles to remain operational in a sharply reduced funding environment. Nuez will employ stylistically unusual production elements to make his film both appealing and relevant to the very youth it examines.

Founded in 1989, COLLABORATIVE URBAN SCULPTURE PROJECTS, Brooklyn, New York, supports community-based art projects that foster collaborations among artists and social service organizations. It creates innovative venues for emerging visual and performing artists, and engages diverse audiences in the experience of these works. Jerome funding of $15,000 was authorized for Witness, a public art work by BRADLEY MCCALLUM, which will present experiences of police-related violence in New York City in a series of public art installations. The piece will be installed at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine and in communities where incidences of police-related violence have occurred. Audio and sculptural elements will document specific histories of the victims. The working concept for the site-specific sculptures is to create cast iron units, similar to fire department call boxes, installed at street intersections throughout the five counties that comprise New York City.
