This is the Jerome Foundation's definition of an Emerging Artist: The Jerome Foundation has adopted new language and guidelines surrounding the definition of an early career/emerging artist. The new emphasis is on funding artists at a relatively early and still formative stage in hopes of providing them “footing” within their respective fields. To this end, the Jerome Foundation does not support artists who already have a fully developed/mature artistic “voice” in any discipline or those who have already been substantially celebrated within their field, the media, funding circles or the public at large in any discipline, including but not limited to the discipline for which support is requested. The focus is on career achievement and recognition. This program determines emerging status based on the totality of an artistic career, not on the achievement within a single discipline. A well-established composer, for example, who decides to begin creating sculpture, is not considered an early career/emerging artist and therefore is ineligible to apply to Jerome for support in any program; such an artist would not be considered an emerging visual artist for the purposes of Jerome Foundation eligibility. Please share how this relates to where you are in your career. (250 words max)
Please include your resume which includes your address and a resume/s of ALL your collaborators here. NOTE: The Jerome Foundation requires a resume, NOT a bio:
Please provide a work sample or link to your sample here and describe how it relates to your proposed project: (samples should be 10-15 pages, minutes, or number or images)
