Call for Projects: Brooklyn Falls for France

      The Cultural Services of the French Embassy is teaming up with the vibrant Brooklyn community to present a Francophone cultural season from September 2019 to January 2020. 

      Brooklyn Falls for France will offer a multidisciplinary program of cultural events gathering theater, dance, music, visual arts, cinema, literature, new technologies, and the culinary arts. The events will take place in Brooklyn and will be linked to French-speaking cultures.

      The call for projects is now open through May 22, 2019. Individual grants of up to $5000 will be distributed to projects selected by a committee.  In addition to financial support, grantees will be included in all Brooklyn Falls for France related communications. 

      Please note that if your project is not selected for a grant but checks all the eligibility criteria, you may still be eligible for a listing in the official Brooklyn Falls for France program.
