The Asian Women Giving Circle

Deadline: February 24, 2023


The Asian Women Giving Circle believes culture is an essential part of any strategy for social change. We support organizations led by Asian American women and/or gender-expansive people and individual artists in NYC who are using arts and culture to: bring about progressive social transformation, raise awareness and catalyze action around critical issues that affect Asian American women, girls, gender-expansive people and families, and highlight and promote women’s central role as leaders, creators, developers and managers of these projects. Each grant is $8,000. We anticipate making 8-10 grants total, depending on how much we raise for our annual pot! For examples of past grantees, please visit our Projects.


Review Process:

All applications are reviewed by AWGC’s Steering Committee. A short-list of applicant projects are advanced as “finalists” and all donors to the grantmaking pool will be invited to vote via email ballot on the projects they believe should be funded. The final grant allocation decisions are made by the Steering Committee and submitted to our fiscal sponsor, the Ms. Foundation for Women, which disburses the grants solely at our direction.

Applications will be reviewed with the following criteria:

The project is led by AAPI women or gender-expansive people and/or has AAPI women and girls and/or gender-expansive people in central roles in the project’s conceptual framework, design and implementation.

The arts and social change are related in an integral way.

Has a clear and persuasive strategy to move hearts and minds toward progressive social change and a strong potential to do so.

Forecast Open Call for Poets

Deadline: February 26, 2023

Mentorships for Audacious Minds.

Artistic practitioners and cultural producers working in all creative fields, anywhere in the world, are encouraged to apply to Forecast’s international mentorship program with projects that could benefit from the expertise of one of this edition’s mentors and their unique approach to material and knowledge production. Send us your project ideas for the chance to work

with one of the following mentors: Poet Gabeba Baderoon (South Africa); drummer Greg Fox (USA); visual artist Roee Rosen (Israel); fashion designer Irakli Rusadze of Situationist

(Georgia); photographer Mila Teshaieva (Ukraine); and performance artist Yuya Tsukahara (Japan).

The mentors in Forecast’s 2023-2024 edition engage with practices that highlight the autonomy of creative endeavors, and emphasize the significance of independent art-making in today’s deeply politicized climate of cultural production and its reception. The call is open to applicants of all ages and does not prescribe a theme. The only requirement is to submit projects that are relevant to the expertise of the mentor you wish to work with.

The selection process is two-tiered. First, the mentors carefully review all proposals and invite three nominees each to workshop with the mentor and present their ideas at the Forecast Forum in Berlin, taking place in July 2023. All eighteen nominees receive an artist fee. Following the Forum, each mentor will select one mentee. Those six mentees will receive a production budget and a licensing and artist fee, and will have several months to produce their project with the mentor’s support. In addition to ongoing exchanges, this period also includes a one-on-one work-stay with the mentor at an international partner institution.

The final productions will be presented to the public at the Forecast Festival in spring 2024. The Forum and the Festival both take place at Radialsystem, Berlin. Forecast can only accept applications submitted in English via the online application form. Please consult the FAQ and Guidelines sections on our website for more details before applying.

The deadline for applications is 11:59pm CET CALL FOR IDEAS

on Sunday, February 26.

Photo North Residency

Deadline:  February 28, 2023

Open call for More-than-Planet residencies 17.1.2023–28.2.2023

Photo North – Northern Photographic Centre announces an open call for artists into two residency programmes as part of the international More-than-Planet project for 2023.

What kind of future are we headed towards? In a world where 75% of the Earth’s land area is under direct human influence the way we understand and imagine the planet has a fundamental impact on the environment. Imagining the future of our planet is based on underlying concepts, value systems, visual cultures and technologies used to describe the Earth’s environment.

What new perspectives, knowledge and novel solutions can we imagine in an era of accelerating environmental change? The Earth’s climate is changing at an unprecedented rate due to human influence. Man-made technosphere is merging with the cycle of life from microbes down to Earth’s bedrock and from the depths of the oceans to atmosphere and space, resulting in an interdependent, hybrid environment. We must change the way we do things in terms of energy, resources and the living environment – to name but a few of the challenges – and adopt more sustainable practices. How to adapt to the changes that are already happening? How to prepare for those that are likely to come? What is the role of local knowledge, on one hand, and information acquired from space, the depths of earth and through satellites and remote sensing, on the other, in describing our hybrid landscapes and lifeforms?

The residency programme calls for artists and workgroups who approach future studies, change detection and environmental change broadly through art and science. The More-than-Planet project and its residency programmes aim to re-examine our understanding of the bigger picture on the planetary level. The themes of the residency are observation of environmental change and artistic exploration of alternative futures and solutions through questions concerning climate, ecology, land use patterns, water ecology, the carbon cycle and social and cultural change. We look for artists who develop and challenge traditional forms of collaboration of art and science, questioning and offering new perspectives. The artists are expected to work in collaboration with both researchers and local communities. The residency is open to all forms of art but places an emphasis on artistic practices that employ lens-based techniques. The residencies will take place in 2023 and 2024.

This open call for artists seeks proposals that open new perspectives and develop novel ideas for works that draw on different methods, technologies, scenarios and identifiable experiences leading to a deeper and broader picture of the change and the solutions it calls for.

The artist or the group selected will be invited to a two-month residency for artistic research and exploration at the 1) Callio Lab underground research station in Pyhäsalmi mine and the surrounding communities or 2) the multidisciplinary research station in Oulanka National Park and the local communities. Our satellite and remote sensing data collaboration partner is the European Space Agency’s earth observation unit ESRIN (ESA Centre for Earth Observation) located in Frascati, Italy.

The artist or group will be paid a total of 15,000 EUR for a two-month period of residency and independent work resulting in a new artwork. The residency period will run from April 2023 to May 2024. Along with the artist fee the residency programme finance the accommodation and travel expenses of the participants and support the production of the works in terms of content, production and technology. Duration of the continuous working period in the residency location is 2-4 week depending on the situation, contract and schedules.

During the residency, the artist will create a new work or body of works for the More-than-Planet exhibition at the gallery of Photo North – Northern Photographic Centre in Oulu, Finland in autumn 2024. The works will also be part of the Photo North – Nordic Photographic Centre’s Oulu European Capital of Culture 2026 project.

In addition, the residency projects of the More-than-Planet project aim for participation in the Ars Electronica festival in Linz, Austria in September 2023, where the processes and the finished works (if available) will be presented. Ars Electronica is an annual digital art festival that explores the future through art, technology and social phenomena.

Selection criteria:

The resident artists are selected by a jury of four members: Antti Tenetz, More-than-Planet project manager (Photo North – Northern Photographic Centre), Darja Zaitsev, executive director, curator (Photo North – Northern Photographic Centre), and Emmi Itäranta renowned Finnish fiction author.

In addition to the previous works described in bio and external links of the applicant or the group, the selection will be based on evaluation of the concept of the work, its artistic quality, the feasibility of the plan and its relation to the themes of the residencies of the More-than-Planet project. We welcome mind-blowing, novel ways of thinking and provocative perspectives. The jury may contact the applicants for further information prior to selection. The implementation and the content of the works will be developed in collaboration with the project participants.

Master Pieces 2023: 17th Annual Exhibit for Emerging Masters

Deadline: March 31, 2023

Every year Manifest offers an opportunity just for current and recent graduate students to exhibit at our gallery in Cincinnati. This 17th installment of the Master Pieces project will continue to reveal the intensity and professionalism of students working towards their terminal academic degree in the field of art or design. Often the most exceptional work comes out of these artists’ immersion in their culture of study and intellectual pursuit. Manifest’s goal, therefore, is to select works that set the standard of quality that the artist is expected to maintain throughout his or her professional career and justify the degree of Master. The full-color retrospective hardcover Manifest Exhibition Annual publication, a 'yearbook' for the season, will serve as a visual documentation of these artists’ own benchmarks for years to come.

Humanitas 2023 College Screenwriting Awards

Deadline: April 14, 2023

Humanitas annually awards two prizes which recognize excellent student screen and television writing: The David and Lynn Angell College Comedy Award and The Carol Mendelsohn College Drama Award. The two student-writers selected each receive a trophy at the annual Humanitas Prizes Event in September 2023, a $20,000 cash prize, a professional notes session, and a copy of WriterDuet. 

In its efforts to identify emerging screenwriters, Humanitas recognizes that students are often in a particularly difficult, precarious position as they transition away from educational environments and into the labor market. A cash prize of this magnitude grants students flexibility in their life choices post-graduation by allowing additional latitude in job hunting, mitigating moving expenses, defraying the cost of tuition, or funding creative projects that would otherwise not be financially feasible.

As part of its mission, Humanitas seeks to recognize work that explores the human condition in a nuanced, meaningful way. This at times includes championing stories which and writers who, for varying reasons, may go overlooked by the traditional marketplace.

Submissions Open: February 1, 2023

Early Deadline: February 28, 2023 ($25 Submission Fee)

Regular Deadline: March 30, 2023 ($30 Submission Fee)

Final Deadline: April 14, 2023 ($35 Submission Fee)

Deadline: April 15, 2023

The Atlanta Shakespeare Company is launching a new playwriting initiative for historically marginalized artists. The "Muse Of Fire Playwriting Festival'' invites playwrights of the global majority to create a full-length play that reimagines Shakespeare’s themes and plots through the lens of BIPOC America. Script submissions will be accepted through spring 2023, and three finalists will be invited to Atlanta to see their scripts receive staged readings in summer 2023. The winning script will also receive a $5000 cash prize and a staged reading at the January 2024 Shakespeare Theatre Association Conference, hosted by the Atlanta Shakespeare Company.


“..if you prick us, do we not bleed?”

In Shakespeare’s time, much like our own, society was full of inequalities. Humans divide ourselves over whatever makes us different, rather than acknowledging we’re all the same.

This year we welcome stories that make us look at what it really means to be human and how we interpret that definition for our own purposes.

Submission Information and Guidelines:

Three finalists will have staged readings of their scripts at the Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse during the weekend of June 30 - July 2, 2023;

The winning play will receive a prize of $5000.00 U.S., and the possible opportunity to further develop their script with the members of the Atlanta Shakespeare Company;

Opening Date for this competition is October 15, 2022; Final Entry Date is April 15, 2023;

Scripts will be adjudicated by a diverse panel of professional artists (including playwrights, actors, directors, producers, and stage managers), and will be judged on creativity, adherence to the theme, originality, and overall quality;

Plays MUST BE NEW WORKS; scripts that have previously been published or produced will not be accepted; any play which has had more than one consecutive performance by a non-college or university theatre which charged admission and/or had a review will not be considered; furthermore, plays may not be under option, commissioned, or scheduled for professional production or publishing at the time of submission;

Adaptations and collaborations may be considered (please note that the prize money will be awarded to the winning script, not each individual collaborator)

RJE Sprout Fund

Deadline: Rolling till June, 2023

The RJE Sprout Fund was established in 2021 to support artists across the nation with direct funds in order to provide financial means to projects that will be completed within a 12 month period.

All artists are encouraged to apply – formally trained, self-taught, and those whose creative work falls outside of traditional forms of art. Artists are also encouraged to apply for funds for projects that involve their communities such as art classes, therapy, outreach, and non-traditional projects.

Over $50,000 was awarded in June of 2021. Applications are accepted year-round with awards generally made every two years in late-Spring.

Funds will be prioritized for artists working with marginalized and underserved audiences, topics, or subject matter.

Russell Efros was a community builder and believed strongly in the importance of collaboration. Russell was often helping friends and family with their projects and understood that one person could make a difference. The Sprout Fund, named in honor of “Russell Sprouts”, as his close friends and family called him, seeks to continue Russell’s work and support fellow artists from across the nation.

Artists seeking funding should complete the application form. Recipients are selected by the RJE Foundation board and leadership.

Next award will be granted in June 2023.

Solo Exhibition Proposals

Deadline: June 1, 2023

Manifest is eager to receive proposals of various types and accepts these on an ongoing basis, reviewing them starting in early June in consideration for the upcoming season. No notifications are made until the final season schedule is decided (usually by the end of July). The organization is a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit and as such operates on a very lean budget with the support of hard won grants as well as thoughtful individual donations to our Annual Fund and in-kind professional services. As such, all submissions to gallery calls and proposals for exhibits include nominal entry/application fees. These are either at or below the national norm for such fees, and we work very hard to maximize all our resources to make the benefits of submission to and participation in our exhibits more valuable than most gallery experiences. The fact that Manifest's non-profit operations are supported in-part by entry fees does not mean that Manifest is a vanity gallery. With a mission to stand for quality in the visual arts, and to serve as a bridge between the community and the highest forms of visual expression, we set our own bar high and generally exceed the expectations of both the exhibiting artists and our patrons with what we do.

Types of proposals:

Solo exhibits

Two person exhibits (while this is acceptable, it is strongly recommended that artists wishing to propose a two-person exhibit submit individual solo proposals, and request consideration of the two-person show as a curatorial option.)*

Group shows (while our strong preference is for solo exhibits, we have considered and accepted group proposals in the past).

Curatorial project (call for entries proposal by curator, a very rare but possible option we have considered in the past)

Eligibility: Anyone can submit a proposal. Artists should bear in mind the need for a consistent and very strong body of work when submitting. Quality of documentation really matters, including installation views, framed/presentation views, etc. when possible.

Media/Genre, etc: Open to all traditional and non-traditional genre and media. Manifest sets out to survey, locate, exhibit, and document excellent quality amongst all types of art. Our record of showing a broad mix speaks for itself.

Cash Award Potential: The annual Grand Jury Award will result in the awarding of one cash prize ($5,000) to a single work selected as the 'best of the entire season'. The winner will be determined by a final end-of-year jury from among a pool of all top-scoring works from each exhibit's jury process across the exhibition season. Solo exhibitors will automatically have one work of their choosing (or Manifest's Director's choosing, should the artist wish it) from their exhibition included in the Grand Jury Award pool. Details on the Grand Jury Award can be found here.
