Program Description

The ENGAGING ARTISTS (EA) Fellowship program is designed for artists seeking to both develop and sustain their public art and socially-engaged practice. The program curriculum encompasses a professional development series, mentorship, and peer networking. The EA Curriculum is valued at $25,000 per participant. The twelve-month Fellowship provides an infrastructure and laboratory for NYC-based emerging and underrepresented artists to gain a deeper understanding of the history of the field of public art, incubate and develop their early-stage research and project, collaborate with communities in shaping society, and build sustainable careers. DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 15, 11:59 EST
