Become a Member of the Endowment fund and enjoy many exclusive advantages

Created by Christine Phal, chairwoman and founder of DRAWING NOW PARIS, the Endowment Fund for Contemporary Drawing is designed to promote the development and influence of contemporary drawing and graphics works both in France and abroad.

Its current action concentrates on early-career artists, and more particulary on the DRAWING NOW Award winners.
These actions are materialized by residence, institutional exhibitions, publications both in France and in the foreigner; so that this award is a real springboard for the career of its awarded.

  • the Sponsors Committee includes major endowment donors,
  • the Committee of Experts qualified in the field of contemporary drawing is charged with making proposals for and monitoring projects that can be funded at the request of the board of directors.
