The Franklin Furnace FUND for Performance Art 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 for Performance Art 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 22, 2023 from 7pm - 8pm EST.
