There is just over a month to apply for The American Turkish Society's Moon and Stars Project autumn grants. The programme provides project and residency grants for burgeoning and established artists.
The residency grants are awarded only to projects under the auspices of an arts and culture organisation in Turkey or the United States, and applicants are required to include an invitation letter from the relevant institution(s) with their application. Grant recipients are also asked to provide a report upon completion of the programme that contains visuals and detailed works about the residency. Project grants, in support of travel and accommodation costs, are extended only to projects that will be exhibited in the United States. Due to limited resources, funding for film production, education programs, attendance to biennials and field/research trips are unfortunately not offered.
Previous recepients include the New York-based new-music ensemble ModernWorks and dance Nejla Yatkin, founder of the NY2 Dance company. The Moon and Stars Project also sponsors the Young Photographers Award (the 2014 shortlisted candidates will be announced in July).
