Promoting French musicians and ensembles in the U.S. is a core goal of the program. Touring projects will be supported up to 10,000 dollars, solely for projects confirmed by an American presenting venue.
- Projects must take place between September 1, 2019 and August 31, 2020.
- Tours must include at least 3 shows or public programs (masterclasses are considered).
- Works presented must be composed by living composers.
Priority will be given to:
- Projects involving artists or living composers whose work has rarely been seen in the partner country
- Projects presented in a minimum of 3 different cities.
- Projects involving new generations of composers.
- Projects involving women artists and/or composers.
- Projects experimenting new forms of music, including computer and electro-acoustic music.
The fund will not support directly individual artists.
