Early Career Support

Young Artists do not often have the means to support themselves and take necessary opportunities.  Targeted career grants given to artists help make possible travel, equipment, and other related needs that will make the difference in their ability to succeed.  Support can also include professional mentorship and guidance to actively manage and grow their careers internationally.

AICF also operates two featured programs, helping facilitate and strengthen Israeli cultural organizations through our Institutional Support Grants, and helping individual artists achieve success through our Artist Funded Grants Program.  Both of these programs strengthen cultural activity by encouraging donors to match their specific needs to those of artists and organizations.

Examples of such support include:
– The pilot program Jerusalem Culture Unlimited, founded by Ruth Cummings
– Israel Glicksberg’s ‘The Writers Trilogy’.
