Franklin Furnace's Special Goings On
February 24, 2006

CONTENTS:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
FRANKLIN FURNACE OPEN CALL TO ALL ARTISTS

DEADLINE: April 1st, 2006 (postmark date)

Each year Franklin Furnace awards grants in two categories. (1) “The Franklin Furnace Fund for Performance Art” supports emerging performance artists, allowing them to produce major works in New York; and (2) “The Future of the Present” funds the creation of "live art on the Internet," works which engage the Internet as an art medium and/or venue. Grants from either fund range between $2,000 and $5,000. Artists from all areas of the world are encouraged to apply.

Franklin Furnace has no curator; each year a new panel of artists reviews all proposals. We believe this peer panel system allows all kinds of artists from all over the world an equal shot at presenting their work. All applicants are automatically considered for both categories of awards. Every year the panel changes, as do the definitions of "emerging artist," "performance art" and "live art on the Internet." So if at first you don't succeed, please try again.

THE FRANKLIN FURNACE FUND FOR PERFORMANCE ART 2006
Supported by Jerome Foundation and the New York State Council on the Arts, Franklin Furnace awards grants between $2,000 and $5,000 to emerging performance artists, allowing them to produce major works in New York. Artists from all areas of the world are encouraged to apply.

THE FUTURE OF THE PRESENT 2006
Franklin Furnace awards artists an honorarium and offers its resources to facilitate the creation of "live art on the Internet," work which engages the Internet as an art medium and/or venue. Artists from all areas of the world are encouraged to apply.

HOW TO APPLY:
