Albertine Grants

Overview

Since 1999, Albertine Foundation has proudly undertaken a comprehensive program dedicated to theater. Now operating under the new name Theatre & New Forms, this initiative aims to encourage and support collaborative endeavors between French and American artists in contemporary theater, circus, puppetry, street theater or hybrid forms by allocating grants to French or American non-for-profit institutions.

From 2017, the program has expanded beyond artists based in France and the United States to include projects by artists from Africa, the West Indies Caribbean, and the Middle Eastperforming in the United States, provided their work is co-produced by French cultural institutions. In an era of global mobility, the objective is to support artists with diverse backgrounds and influences, promoting a multitude of voices and fostering rich intercultural dialogue.

Since its creation, the program has distributed $3.2 million to support 300 projects that reflect the cultural and artistic diversity of the French and American contemporary scenes.

In 2024, Theatre & New Forms supports two types of grants:
