FUSED will support a limited number of artistic projects as per the eligibilty criteria listed below
All 2016 project applications should be submitted directly to FACE.
Next application deadline: SPRING 2017 - T.B.A.
FUSED will only support projects in 2016 that involve artists whose work has never been seen in the partner country.
FUSED will support in priority projects (presentation and/or residency) that involve new artistic collaborations between choreographers and artists from other disciplines such as composers, musicians, visual artists, designers, and performers with multifaceted backgrounds and influences. Collaborative projects must include artists based in the U.S. and France collaborating together to explore new practices.
In case of a tour, a minimum of five performances for the entire tour is required. Only project presenting artists whose work has never been seen in the partner country are eligible.
The residency or performance(s) should make a significant impact on the artist(s), the organization, and/or the community, for example by:
—Introducing an artist whose work has never previously been seen in the partner country;
—Enabling artists from the partner countries to collaborate with an artist or group of artists for the first time, including artists from other disciplines;
—Bringing an artist into a community for the first time to conduct extensive activities with the public
FUSED grants may support up to 50% of the artist’s fee, including housing, per diem, travel, and visa expenses, but cannot exceed $15,000.
The applicant organization must demonstrate a clear and significant financial commitment toward the project (individual performer or company). In-kind donations such as space in case of residencies must be specified.
Individual artists and companies are not eligible to apply, even if represented by a fiscal sponsor.
Any U.S. nonprofit organization working with French artists and French organizations (with the status of association à but non lucratif) working with U.S. artists such as a theater, museum, or festival can apply through FACE.
Prior to the deadline, organizations should contact FACE to ensure the eligibility of the artist or company for whom they wish to apply.
