The Franklin Furnace FUND 2022-2023

Share

Country:

City:

The Franklin Furnace FUND awards grants ranging from $2,000 - $10,000 annually to early career artists of all backgrounds to assist the production of new major performance art works. Artists from all areas of the world are encouraged to apply and selected artists must present their work in New York City. 

Artists may apply once per year as an individual, and once per year as part of a collaboration. 

Franklin Furnace has no curator; each year a new panel of artists reviews all proposals. 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, and brings new perspectives of “early career artist" and "performance art." So if at first you don't succeed, please try again. 

For an overview of the Franklin Furnace FUND and to find out about the components of a well-prepared application, all prospective applicants are highly encouraged to register and attend our online information session. You can attend live, or access a recording on our website.

The information session is scheduled for Monday, February 28, 2022 from 7pm - 8pm EST. 

If you have any questions, please contact Arantxa Araujo, Program Director at arantxa@franklinfurnace.org

Open call for applications to the 2022 Sheffield DocFest Alternate Realities Commission

Up to £15k funding, curatorial, production and marketing support is available for an artist or collective to create/complete a new, non-fiction digital project. The succesful proposal will exhibit at Site Gallery during Sheffield DocFest 2022 (23-28 June).

This open call is for artists who work in digital non-fiction, create immersive experiences or experiment with new technologies. We encourage applications from debut, emerging and established artists and collectives from the UK and internationally.

Who can we support?

  • We welcome applications from artists based in the UK and internationally
  • Applicants must be able to demonstrate a strong commitment to innovation in digital storytelling in the realm of non-fiction
  • Evidence of a strong body of artistic work, including a proven track record of recent work, projects, exhibitions, publishing, and/or commissions is desirable, but not essential as this is completion funding
  • The panel is open to projects that may have already started or are in production, providing we are made aware of any other partners or funding bodies involved in the project
  • It is the sole responsibility of the applicant to secure clearance from the copyright holders of any copyrighted materials included within the submitted projects. Sheffield DocFest will not be held responsible for the unauthorised inclusion of any copyrighted materials within or related to the submitted application.

The commission is made possible with thanks to the generous support of Arts Council England and Site Gallery.

Prize summary: 
Up to £15k complete funding for an artist or collective from anywhere around the world
Prizes Details: 

How can we support you?

The selected proposal will be awarded up to £15,000 to cover artist fees, production costs and expenses. Travel (including international flights) and accommodation for the selected artist(s) to install their work and participate in our Alternate Realities programme at the Festival will come from this fund.

The selected winner cannot use the funding to build a marketing campaign for an existing work. Both Sheffield DocFest and Site Gallery will provide marketing support and expertise to promote the Commissioned work. 

We will support display costs through securing the venue and basic AV equipment (subject to technical requirements) and we will also provide the technical support needed to exhibit the work as part of the festival. Sheffield DocFest will act as Executive Producer and we will offer curatorial and production support in the delivery and marketing of the commission.

27/February/2022
