As in the previous Virtual Exploration Grant round, NET will explicitly center and lift up Black and Indigenous artists and ensembles in the NET membership and those who identify as People of Color, disabled artists, immigrant artists on O-work visas, LGBTQIA+ artists, parents and caregivers, and other folks living at the intersections of oppression by actively prioritizing funding for these requests. Our goal is to prioritize and center artists and ensembles who live and work at the intersection of identities that are marginalized by racist and oppressive systems.
The application asks Black and Indigenous artists and others living at the intersections of oppression to self-identify, in order to prioritize this funding criteria during the review process.
If you receive a Virtual Exploration Grant, you will still be eligible to apply for NET/TEN funding in future rounds (including 2022 Exchange and Spring Travel Grants).
Eligible expenses must relate to the remote relationship-building activities, and may include:
Travel expenses, production expenses, production tours, capital equipment purchases, and publicly-available professional development offerings (e.g. using funds to register for online or in-person conferences, festivals, or other pre-existing public workshops or trainings) are not supported by this Grant.
