The Translation Project is a 501 (C) 3 nonprofit organization without any religious or political ties. We do cultural work that builds bridges between people. We have been lucky in the past to be recipients of grants for new works and events, and we hope to continue receiving them as economic climates shift. However, our day to day operations needs your support. This means, staff, supplies and anything not covered by art grants.
