FUSED: French U.S. Exchange in Dance

      The goals of FUSED: French U.S. Exchange in Dance are to foster dialogue, strengthen professional relationships, and spark creative artistry through meaningful exchanges in the partner countries.

      Between 2004 and 2015, FUSED has introduced choreographers and performers whose works had never or rarely been seen in the partner country. It has contributed to building numerous partnerships between French and American presenters and artists, enabling innovative collaborations and cultural exchange. It has also been instrumental in reaching out to new audiences in both countries. (link to past grantees).

      FUSED has distributed more than $1,500,000 supporting artistic projects as well as curatorial research trips in the United States and France.

      In 2016, NEFA and FACE launched an evaluation of the program since its inception in addition to supporting curatorial research trips and a limited number of artistic projects that explored potential new directions for FUSED.

      In 2017, FUSED invites applications to support artistic projects based on the following guidelines:

      • U.S. organizations should submit an application through NEFA requesting up to $15,000

      • French organizations should submit an application through FACE requesting up to $15,000
