Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $30,000 to USA and France nonprofit organizations for visual arts projects, commissions, and exhibitions. Priority will be given to projects by French and American nonprofits for binational online and hybrid (physical/online) projects. Funding is primarily intended for American nonprofit institutions to organize exhibitions, installations, or research projects featuring French and France-based artists.

The Fund aims to support significant and engaging artistic projects that speak to relevant questions in contemporary art across the world. It achieves this by fostering active collaboration and encouraging long-lasting partnerships between French visual artists, curators, or collectives and American curators and cultural institutions.

Étant donnés aims to support ambitious projects, with priority given to coproductions, new commissions, and projects that can be developed across several cities in the U.S. and/or in partnership with French institutions. The program seeks primarily to introduce French visual artists whose works have rarely, if ever, been shown in the United States to American audiences. The fund offers financial support in the form of grants to American nonprofit institutions that plan to organize physical exhibitions, installations, or research projects featuring French or France-based artists.

Due to the exceptional situation this year created by the COVID-19 pandemic, Étant donnés has adjusted its criteria to better answer the needs of artistic cooperation between France and the United States in today’s world by encouraging the development of online and hybrid (physical & online) projects for this specific grant. Thus, this program will additionally be open to supporting artistic projects between American and French nonprofit institutions willing to develop a shared reflection and artistic projects in this new digital era.

In order to be eligible for an Etant Donnés grant, commissions, projects, or exhibitions must pertain to the field of visual arts in its broadest sense (including photography, design, architecture, art performance, video, installation, etc.).

Funding areas include: solo exhibits, group exhibits, research workshops, and symposiums. This year, priority will be given to online and hybrid (physical & online) projects between American and French nonprofit institutions.
