Summer in Bozeman: How an OSU theatre professor is impacting rural arts engagement

In the summer of 2022, Eric Barker, an Oklahoma State University assistant professor of scenic design, found himself with a Research Jumpstart/Accelerator Grant (RJAG) but nowhere to spend it; his original plans to work with the Richmond Shakespeare festival in Richmond, Indiana, had fallen through.   The RJAG grant is designed to aid faculty in getting their research up and running following the COVID-19 pandemic. Barker knew he needed to find another research project and did just that, landing the chance to work with Montana Shakespeare in the Parks (MSIP) in Bozeman, Montana.
