The Franklin Furnace Fund 2019-20
The Franklin Furnace Fund awards grants annually to early career 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 "early career artist" and "performance art." So if at first you don't succeed, please try again.
The Franklin Furnace Fund 2019-2020 is supported by Jerome Foundation and the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Artists supported by funding from Jerome Foundation must live in the five boroughs of New York City or the state of Minnesota.
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 City. Full-time students are ineligible.
