International Call for Applicants: Franklin Furnace Fund (NY) 2017 – 2018

International Call for Applicants: Franklin Furnace Fund (NY) 2017 – 2018

Deadline: April 1st, 2017

From their call: The Franklin Furnace Fund awards grants annually to emerging artists to enable them to produce major performance art works in New York. Grants range from between $2,000 and $10,000 based on the peer review panel allocation of funding received by the Franklin Furnace.

Franklin Furnace has no curator; each year a new panel of artists reviews all proposals. We believe this peer panel system allows all kinds of artists from all over the world an equal shot at presenting their work. Every year the panel changes, as do the definitions of “emerging artist” and “performance art.” So if at first you don’t succeed, please try again.

The Franklin Furnace Fund 2017-2018 is supported by the Jerome Foundation, the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and by general operating support from the New York State Council on the Arts.

Artists from all over the world are encouraged to apply; however, artists selected by the panel are expected to present their work in New York. Artists supported by funding from Jerome Foundation must live in the five boroughs of New York City or the state of Minnesota. Full-time students are ineligible.

Note: Before you can access the Franklin Furnace Fund 2017-2018 application form, you must first complete a brief questionnaire that will help determine your eligibility. If eligibility is confirmed, you will be provided with a link to the online application.
