Arts funding in Philadelphia is off to a great start in 2016, and it doesn’t look like it’s slowing down just yet.

Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance kicked off Philly Tech Week with TechniCulture, an event celebrating the intersection between technology and arts and culture.

Nobody at the event was happier than local two-person theater company Tiny Dynamite, which took home a $20,000 grant from the Barra Foundation. The theater company beat out two other organizations in a competition that placed them with a technologist who evaluated their technology needs.

With the grant, Tiny Dynamite will look to boost its international production, develop new partnerships and “document and share their process with other theater companies interested in using technology as a performance medium,” according to a release.

As if the $20,000 wasn’t enough, the organization also received $5,000 in pro-bono legal services from Morgan Lewis, and was selected as the winner of a $1,000 “People’s Choice Award” from University City Science Center, selected by event attendees.

As for the runners-up, Christ Church Preservation Trust and Philadelphia Young Playwrights each received $10,000 from Barra.
