Franklin Furnace Fund

The Franklin Furnace Fund, supported by Jerome Foundation, the Lambent Foundation, The SHS Foundation, and the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

The Franklin Furnace Fund awards grants annually to emerging 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 “emerging 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; however, artists selected by the panel are expected to present their work in New York. Full-time students are ineligible.


Deadline: April 1, 2014 at 11:59pm Eastern Standard Time
