Application and Guidelines for Global Connections

From Theatre Communication Group (TGC)

This program encourages reciprocity and cultural exchange throughout the world-recipients may use the funds to pursue activity abroad or to host international colleagues within the U.S. to pursue unrestricted travel and projects by professionals working in all aspects of theatre.

The grants are offered through two separate initiatives:

On the Road travel grants will award six grants of up to $6,000 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 pre-existing 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 of other TCG grants are eligible to apply in this program. Both these initiatives will be awarded over two cycles in this inaugural round. Please review the timeline for specific deadlines for each period of activity.

Supported by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
