The New England Foundation for the Arts is accepting applications from dance choreographers for its New England Dance Fund.
Through the fund, NEFA will award small, catalytic grants ranging between $500 and $1,000 directly to choreographers who identify and articulate a critical opportunity that will significantly advance their career in dance. Priority will be given to timely opportunities with the goal of supporting a diverse group of artists from a range of cultures, disciplines, aesthetics, and career stages in all six New England states.
Eligible opportunities include but are not limited to residencies; research trips, conferences, workshops or other trainings that build creative or administrative skills; tour planning, publication expenses, documentation, video shoots, or artist fees needed to prepare the work for a pivotal presentation opportunity; hiring a consultant; or mentorship. Opportunities must take place between April 1, 2018, and March 31, 2019.
To be eligible, applicants must have a Creative Ground profile with DANCE as the primary discipline and work full time in one of the six New England states.
See the NEFA website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
