GLOBAL CONNECTIONS: ROUND 4 • CYCLE A
ONLINE APPLICATION SUBMISSION DEADLINE:
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2014, NOON ET
Global Connections encourages reciprocity and cultural exchange throughout the world by supporting the unrestricted travel and projects of professionals working in all aspects of theatre. Recipients may use the funds to pursue theatre-based activities abroad or to host international colleagues within the U.S.
The grants are offered through two separate initiatives:
ON the ROAD travel grants will award six grants of up to $5,000 each, per cycle, to foster new relationships with international colleagues that will inspire each other’s work and aesthetics by creating opportunities for cultural exchange. This initiative is open to a broad range of theatre professionals from artists to administrators to those in production areas.
IN the LAB project development grants will award three grants of $10,000 each, per cycle, to further preexisting international collaborations by supporting residencies that either advance the research and development of a theatre piece or explore elements leading up to a full production. Projects do not need to result in a final mainstage production.
ON the ROAD grants are not prerequisites for the IN the LAB initiative. Previous recipients in this program are not eligible to apply in consecutive cycles.
