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. 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.
Artists from all areas of the world are encouraged to apply. Full-time students are ineligible.
Note: Due to COVID19, artists may choose to present their artworks online.
