JFM Arts & Culture Grant Open Call for 2022


The Japan Foundation, Manila Arts & Culture Grant Releases Open Call for 2022

The Japan Foundation, Manila is opening its call for proposals for the JFM Arts & Culture Grant for 2022. Across the areas of film, Japanese studies, literature, music, performing arts, and visual arts, the JFMAC Grant is looking to fund imaginative cultural initiatives that reinforce the solidarity between Japan and the Philippines.

Last year’s 20 grant recipients have successfully implemented programs that bridged the two cultures through different forms. These included diverse projects such as butoh dance workshops by Kapwa-Movement Project, A physical theater-film collaboration project entitled Wor(L)d of My Bodies by Black Canvas, intellectual exchange forums such as Salikhain Kolektib’s Resilience in Context forum, and virtual artist studio visits organized by Load Na Dito, to name a few.

Though most of last year’s programs have been held virtually, this year’s grant is now open to both on-line, on-site, or even projects on hybrid platforms. Now that many restrictions are lifted and more face-to-face interactions are happening, the JFMAC Grant is looking forward to supporting programs with in-person participation.

Successful applicants of the grant are provided with funding, research scholarships, and other forms of support that bring Japanese culture and expertise into their prospective projects. Grantees can avail of the JFMAC Grant’s PHP 50,000.00 support, with possible adjustments based on the proposal that can reach to PHP 150,000.00. This may cover for honorarium, promotion, and other related costs.

For interested applicants who want to know more about the grant, there will be an on-line orientation on 18 May 2022, Wednesday at 3:00PM via zoom. Here, potential grantees may learn about application procedures, Japanese participation requirements, financial obligations, and other pertinent information to help them achieve successful application. Interested participants may register for the orientation via the following link:
