Subject: Stage Directors and Choreographers Foundation [SDCF] Guest ArtistÂ Initiative
The Stage Directors and Choreographers Foundation (SDCF), the not-for-profitÂ foundation affiliated with the Stage Directors and Choreographers SocietyÂ (SDC), announces a call for proposals for the SDCF Guest Artist InitiativeÂ Program, a grant program for American colleges and universities to fund andÂ facilitate the hiring of professional stage directors and choreographers as
Guest Artists. Through this program, SDCF has funded six productions acrossÂ the country and has facilitated an additional four productions.
Interested schools may apply by submitting a completed application form forÂ a production to SDCF. An SDCF panel comprised of professional directors andÂ choreographers, arts administrators, and college educators will select theÂ productions to be awarded grants. SDCF will furnish up to $6,000 to beÂ shared by at least two schools.
To be eligible for this grant, the project must be produced by a regionallyÂ or nationally accredited American college or university located in theÂ United States, be mounted by December 31, 2013, and be fully funded. It isÂ not required for the producing school to have hired guest artists in theÂ past. Projects for which the Guest Artist has already been selected areÂ ineligible.
Eligible schools interested in applying for the SDCF Guest Artist InitiativeÂ Program can download the Guest Artist Initiative Application and GuidelinesÂ atÂ http://www.sdcweb.org/
encourage early application as no applications will be accepted after thisÂ date. The selected schools will be notified by June 19, 2012. If requested,Â basic feedback will be given by SDCF staff on any proposal draft received byÂ April 30, 2012.
