Opportunities: Open Call – Franklin Furnace Fund 2018-19 (New York) Deadline – 04/01/2018

Open Call – Franklin Furnace Fund 2018-19 ((New York)) 2018
Deadline: 04/01/2018
Online Application:
Fee to Apply: FREE

Description Of Opportunity:

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

Franklin Furnace has no curator; each year a new panel of artists reviews all proposals. They 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 2018-2019 is supported by Jerome Foundation and the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

Artists from all areas of the world are encouraged to apply; however, artists selected by the panel are expected to present their work in New York. Full-time students are ineligible.

Award Terms

  • Projects may begin as early as August 1, 2018.
  • Artists who are awarded funding must present new works of performance art – though it is acceptable for these works to be shown in earlier iterations as works-in-progress.
  • Funded projects must be presented in New York.
  • Grants range between $2,000 and $10,000, depending on peer review panel allocation of funding.
  • Grant recipients are required to submit video and photographic documentation of their funded projects to Franklin Furnace for preservation in the institution’s event archives. The grant recipient is responsible for hiring a videographer and photographer, and Franklin Furnace can provide referrals if needed.
  • Grant recipients must sign a release form allowing Franklin Furnace the non-exclusive right to share their project documentation on its website for educational purposes.
