With its Fonds d'aide à la circulation des artistes, the International Organization of La Francophonie (OIF) supports the circulation of professional artists and their performances (music, theater, and dance) through international tours and festivals.
This OIF initiative enables contemporary artists from countries in the southern hemisphere and from central and eastern Europe who belong to La Francophonie, to cross borders, break into international programming networks, and develop their professional careers.
Each year the organization sends out two calls for projects. Particular attention is given to multiplying and unifying projects that contribute to the development of artists at home and abroad.
Deadline for submission of applications: five copies of requests for support for the circulation of performing arts must be submitted in French by the project leaders, and sent in by mail no later than four months prior to the start of a tour or festival.
Next project review: September 2011 (date to be determined).
To download the necessary documents for submission of an application for support, as well as to learn more about project review and selection, please consult the OIF website.
