OneBeat Virtual will digitally convene 70 musicians from up to 44 countries and territories in two separate virtual residencies taking place July 12 – September 6, 2021 and September 20 – November 17, 2021.  Each program will offer a fully virtual residency and exchange program with musicians from around the globe. Over the course of 8-weeks, OneBeat Virtual Fellows will investigate new forms of virtual collaboration, form ensembles to write, produce, and perform genre-defying work, attend virtual masterclasses and open-studios, lead online workshops, and produce a streaming final concert for the public. Fellows will also have the opportunity to pursue self-directed projects during the Fellowship. These projects will address a particular community and focus on community engagement and participation. We encourage the development of projects that explore innovations within a particular field of arts engagement, digital media, or technology.

OneBeat Virtual is accepting applications from February 10 – March 10, 2021 for participation in either OneBeat V.1 or OneBeat V.2. Applicants will be considered for both fellowship dates, but assigned to only one virtual residency if selected. Applicants may list a date preference, but preferences cannot be guaranteed. Each OneBeat Virtual fellowship involves 28 working days over 8-weeks to allow for asynchronous offline interaction and development time. Musicians and sonic artists, ages 19-35, from eligible countries and territories are invited to apply. Fellows will receive a $1,500 USD honorarium, a per diem for online work sessions, and, based on individual need, a small subsidy for technical support.

OneBeat Lebanon Application

Applications are now closed. Applicants will be notified of the review panel decision by April 23, 2021.

Program Dates: July 5 – 26, 2021

 

OneBeat is accepting applications for OneBeat Lebanon, the fifth installment of its OneBeat Abroad series. OneBeat Lebanon will digitally convene 10 Lebanon-based musicians and two U.S.-based musicians for an intensive residency to co-create original work and to develop civically engaged music initiatives. During the 3-week intensive digital residency, 12 OneBeat Lebanon Fellows will form ensembles to write, record, produce, and perform genre-defying work, re-invent existing music, lead online workshops with refugee youth, attend virtual masterclasses and produce a streaming final concert for the public. This virtual program will draw inspiration from the music of our ancestors, and the fundamental musicality that predates language itself, posing the question: What if, in a parallel universe, music was the only language? OneBeat Lebanon is an initiative of the U.S. Department of States Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and produced by Found Sound Nation. This program was produced with the generous support of the Public Affairs Section at the U.S. Embassy in Lebanon.

Musicians and sonic artists, ages 19-35, from Lebanon and the United States are invited to apply. Fellows will receive a $1,500 USD honorarium as well as stipend for purchasing necessary audio equipment and enhanced internet connectivity. Selected Fellows and Alternates will be notified by April 23, 2021. Learn more about eligibility, FAQs, or selection criteria
