Grant DetailTheatre Communications Group Accepting Proposals for International Collaboration Grants
Theatre Communications Group
The New York City-based Theatre Communications Group is accepting proposals from theater organizations and individual artists in support of collaborations between artists based in the United States and their colleagues around the world.
Through its Global Connections program, TCG will award up to twelve On the Road grants of up to $5,000 each to individual artists looking to foster new relationships with international colleagues that inspire their work and create opportunities for cultural exchange; and up to six In the Lab grants of $10,000 each to further preexisting collaborations through support for residencies that either advance the development of a piece or explore elements leading up to a full production.
To be eligible for consideration, organizations must be classified as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code; have a history over the last three years of developing and/or producing its own theater works; and employ at least one full-time salaried staff person at the time of application. In addition, all artists within the organization must be compensated fairly for their work (although it is not necessary for the theater to use an Equity contract).
Individual artists must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States; have a minimum of five years' experience working in nonprofit theater; and have mounted a professional production within the last year.
See the TCG website for complete program guidelines, information about previous recipients, and application instructions.
