The New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA) has announced an exciting new grant opportunity for New England performing artists: New Work New England.
What does it fund? New performing arts work in New England. It awards grants of $7,500-$15,000 to support the creation of new work that has the potential to engage multiple New England communities. The program has a special focus on projects that further equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility.
Who can apply? Individuals and artistic collaborations in dance, film, interdisciplinary work, media, music, musical theater, opera, poetry, storytelling and/or theater. Artists need to live in New England and have an active profile on CreativeGround. Priority will be given to artists who have not already received funding from NEFA’s National Dance Project, National Theater Project, and Creative City, or from the Boston Foundation’s Live Arts Boston grants.
What happens if I win? You make amazing new work to perform throughout New England. You’ll also be invited to present the project at NEFA’s annual Idea Swap event.
When is the first application deadline? June 24, 2020.
Where can I learn more? Visit NEFA on the world wide web.
