Proposed travel and research in Israel must take place within a 12 month period from the date of application. Grants are awarded to artists, curators and art writers for research and travel in Israel related to contemporary art. Research might be related to a specific project or general research related to the applicant’s practice or area of inquiry. Applications are evaluated based upon local and international impact, feasibility, audience, and contribution to contemporary art discourse. Applicants may apply funding towards airfare, accommodations, residency fees or other expenses related to research in Israel. Applicants must currently work and reside outside of Israel. Artis does not fund tuition fees or projects that do not require travel to Israel. Individuals or nonprofit institutions may apply.
Funding and Awards
Artis will award up to $20,000 in Travel & Research Grants 2016. Applicants may request up to $5,000 in funding. Artis may consider funding up to 100% of a proposal, depending on the project’s scope and budget.
Application Process and Timeline
Letters of Interest will be accepted online on a rolling basis beginning January 8, 2016. The LOI provides early guidance regarding eligibility and a proposal’s alignment with Artis’ mission and grantmaking criteria (see our Travel and Research Grant FAQs). LOIs are reviewed by Artis’ staff, who will contact applicants with the status of their application in approximately 60 days from the date of submission. For applicants awarded funding, Artis grants 60% of the total grant award upfront and 40% upon completion of the proposed project and submission of a final report.
Applications are evaluated based upon local and international impact, feasibility, audience, and contribution to contemporary art discourse. Artis strives to enrich the ongoing dialogue between Israel and the international art community. Applicants are expected to demonstrate how the project engages, reflects or advances the community of artists, curators and practitioners working in Israel. Successful applicants will specify how their research might generate opportunities for the development of future projects, research and exchange.
