Guidelines of assistance

Threatened artists from any field of artistic practice—such as choreographers, composers, filmmakers, interdisciplinary artists, musicians, performance and theater artists, traditional artists, visual artists, writers—may be eligible.

Description

The Artist Protection Fund (APF) at IIE makes life-saving fellowship grants to threatened artists and places them at host institutions and art centers in safe countries where they can continue their work and plan for their future. Sponsored by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and with the host-participation of arts institutions and organizations from around the world, the APF fills a critical unmet need by providing relief and safe-haven to artists for an extended period.
