Dallas Theater Center is the largest professional theater in North Texas and is committed to serving its diverse community. In 1986, Dallas Theater Center created Project Discovery in order to build bridges between our theatrical programming and the educational work being taught in our local schools. Since then, Project Discovery has worked with over 300,000 students and teachers by developing enriching experiences at little or no cost. In 2013, Project Discovery was one of twelve organizations nationwide to be awarded the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award, and the only organization within those award winners to win the 2013 Louis Vuitton Inspiration Grant.
The mission of Project Discovery is to serve as a catalyst for young people to find their voice and explore their place in the world and within the social justice ecosystem.
Participation in Project Discovery is made possible through grants, corporate and individual giving available to any secondary staff or faculty in North Texas, pending a completed application and supporting materials.
