Franklin Furnace Fund Now Accepting Grant Applications For Performance Work

⊆ February 26th, 2014 by admin | ˜ No Comments »
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. 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.
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.
To apply to The Franklin Furnace Fund, please read the application Guidelines carefully and apply using our Online Application.
Geographic Focus: National, but work is expected to be presented in New York.
Deadline: April 1, 2014

Americans For the Arts: Petition to Congress

⊆ October 2nd, 2013 by admin | ˜ No Comments »

Online Petition to Tell Congress: Don’t cut funding for the arts and arts education

“With a 49% budget cut, the NEA will be forced to drastically scale back their grant-making. These disproportionate cuts of $71 million are short-sighted and will ultimately be devastating when combined with the additional loss of $639 million in potential matching funds for the arts. For every dollar the NEA invests in a nonprofit arts organization, it is matched on average 9-to-1 by additional grants. Communities rely on NEA grants to leverage additional support for the arts, generate local economic activity, and fuel innovation. Through the relatively small investments made by Congress, NEA is making possible extraordinary things all across the country, including seeding new jobs in the creative economy.
Stand with us as we protect this important educational and economic investment in our country, by telling Congress that cutting funding to the NEA is not an option. Now is the time to make sure that they hear our voice and protect the arts in America. Add your name to the online petition and make a difference in the lives of all Americans.”

Take action!
