CALL FOR ARTISTS: Franklin Furnace Fund – USA

Deadline date: April 1, 2013

This season is the 28th anniversary of the Franklin Furnace Fund.  Initiated in 1985 with the support of Jerome  Foundation, Franklin Furnace has annually awarded grants to emerging artists selected by peer panel review to enable  them to prepare major performance art works. Events are presented in partnership with collegial venues, online, or, in  the city environment.

Grants range between $2,000 and $10,000 based on the peer review panel allocation of funding received by Franklin Furnace. Artists from all areas of the world are encouraged to apply; however, artists supported by funding from Jerome Foundation must live in the five boroughs of New York. Full-time students are ineligible.

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.

Deadline: April 1, 2013
