See the complete request for proposals here: http://www.fnci.org/Opportunities/tabid/91/Default.aspx
FNCI funds the creation of newly composed work by American Indian, Alaskan Native and Native Hawaiian composers, commissioners or performing musicians. Awards are based on artistic excellence, merit and connection to audience and community.
Common Ground Overview
The Common Ground program is inclusive, and therefore encourages American Indian, Alaskan Native and Native Hawaiian composers, performers, and sound artists working in diverse genres/mediums to apply. Artists are encouraged to take risks in their creative endeavors. Common Ground is designed to fill the gap in funding for artists who are particularly interested in creating work without the burden of artistic compromise. Common Ground aims to give timely aid to those American Indian, Alaskan Native and Native Hawaiian musicians who are strongly dedicated to their art, who show artistic merit, and who propose an excellent project. We wish to award grants to varied artists from the many genres of music represented in Indian Country, and from diverse American Indian, Alaskan Native and Native Hawaiian cultures.
We are pleased to announce our NEW funding guidelines. Individual awards will now range from $500 to $5,000.
