Five grants are available.
Five artists will be awarded the following:
- $8,000.00 commission support paid directly to the artist across three installments for their time to create a new work. Take the size of this fee into consideration in regards to the scope (length of the work, technical demands, and number of artists required for performance) of your proposed work.
- $3,000.00 to help with the production or promotion of the new work. These funds may be used before, during, or after the premiere. Scenarios might include: research, travel, consultation, preparation fees, equipment or software costs, rehearsals, workshops, space rental, collaboration costs, outreach events, touring, publication, recording, and promotion costs.
Proposed works should be at an early stage in their development, and must not be finished by the time of application.
Works must be scheduled to premiere after September 30, 2021. Supported projects must be completed within five years of the award date.
