Funded Projects

One of NPN/VAN’s primary objectives is to support artists’ ability to move their work around the country and the world, to reach new audiences and communities. A second key objective is to facilitate the development of new work, to support NPN/VAN Partners’ ability to commission fresh, exciting creations and collaborations. These goals are achieved through NPN?VAN’s subsidy programs: Exhibition Residency Performance Residency, Community Fund, Mentorship & Leadership Initiative, Creation Fund, Forth Fund, and International Program.
