A Blade of Grass: Fellowships for Individual Artists and Collectives, Socially Engaged Art

Fellowships for Individual Artists and Collectives, Socially Engaged Art
Deadline: October 16

A Blade of Grass
New York, NY

We believe in the power of socially engaged artists to participate meaningfully in creating a more just, equitable, sustainable, joyful, and compassionate future. We know this means that artists must take time and care to develop relationships built on mutual trust, as well as work with diverse non-arts partners and communities. We understand there are no ready-made roadmaps or guaranteed outcomes for this type of work, and are committed to learning how artists navigate these processes and relationships.

Our fellowship program is meant to support courageous artists in creating exchanges, experiences, and structures that highlight seemingly intractable social problems, inspire audiences, and energize folks to participate in and sustain long-term social change work. This is hard and time-consuming organizational, intellectual, and emotional work.

We are committed to providing relatively unrestricted funding that incorporates a collaborative research component. Additionally, field research replaces grant reporting written by the artist, and is grounded in the goals and areas of inquiry defined by the artist and the perspective of project participants.

Selected Fellows will receive:

  • $20,000 in minimally restricted support

  • Comprehensive written Field Research Reports that utilize action research methodology

  • Expenses Paid 2-day Orientation Retreat in NYC to engage a cohort of peer artists and ABOG staff and board (a requirement for the fellowship)

  • Ongoing invitations to networking events for all ABOG Fellows and Alumni twice annually (attendance voluntary)

  • Ongoing promotion of fellow’s projects through ABOG social media networks and website

In addition to direct artist support, another primary goal of ABOG is to make the “invisible” parts of socially engaged art visible. We do this through documentary films, publications, web content, and public programming. However, these content collaborations are not an obligation of the fellowship, and will be based on mutual interest under a separate contract.

New for 2020: A Blade of Grass awards 8 Fellowships for Socially Engaged Art each year. Beginning in 2020, two of these eight will be granted to a Los Angeles-based artist (any age) and a New York City-based artist of color under the age of 30.

Diane Dammeyer Fellowship in Photographic Arts and Social Issues

Diane Dammeyer Fellowship in Photographic Arts and Social Issues
Deadline: April 1

The Diane Dammeyer Fellowship in Photographic Arts and Social Issues creates a space for a socially engaged photographer to produce a compelling and dynamic body of work highlighting human rights and social issues.

Columbia College Chicago and Heartland Alliance, two internationally recognized institutions with Chicago roots dating back more than 120 years, partner in hosting the Diane Dammeyer Fellowship in Photographic Arts and Social Issues. The fellowship is a unique public commitment to socially engaged art, combining Columbia's dedication to academic excellence and developing authentic, creative voices with Heartland Alliance's bold history of advocating for the rights of the world's most vulnerable populations.

This postgraduate fellowship creates an opportunity for a socially engaged photographer to immerse themselves in the community of Heartland Alliance and to produce a new, original, and compelling body of photographic work that speaks to the human rights and social issues revealed through these experiences. By engaging with the Heartland Alliance community of participants and practitioners, the fellowship allows the artist to create a true connection between subject, audience, and community. This serves the larger goal of the fellowship, which is to use photographic practice to elevate our collective awareness of social, economic, and cultural issues and to inspire positive social change.

In addition to their work with the Heartland Alliance community in the greater Chicago area, the fellow will also spend significant time at Columbia College Chicago, where they will be mentored by a Photography Department faculty member and will work with Columbia students. The fellow will also have a Heartland Alliance project sponsor dedicated to aid their immersion in the Heartland community and to provide valuable feedback during the nine-month project. The fellowship will culminate with a public presentation, exhibition and/or publication of the fellow’s newly created body of work at the completion of the fellowship period.

Because of the dynamic nature of the fellowship, a full-time commitment is required during the academic year (September to May). Fellowship hours will vary, as will the activities in which the fellow will be immersed. It is expected that the fellow will reside in Chicago during the term of the award.

A $25,000 stipend will be awarded for the 2019-20 academic year to support the fellow’s work. Talented individuals who have completed an MFA in photography or in another related creative field and who are committed to active immersion and participation with Heartland Alliance and Columbia College Chicago are encouraged to apply.

The fellowship is part of CDS's Documentary Diversity Project, a three-year pilot program whose goal is to build pathways for more people of color to engage with the documentary arts and to become nonfiction storytellers, gatekeepers, and critical consumers; to support their achievements; and to promote their work. The pilot is made possible, in part, by a grant from the William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust.

What CDS will provide:
- A stipend of $35,000 with health benefits.
- Access to CDS and Duke University libraries, computers, audiovisual equipment, labs, facilities, and studio/office space.
- Access to CDS's long-established local and national networks for collaboration and creative exchange.
- Programming to support and enhance professional and artistic development.
- One-on-one mentoring with a variety of successful documentary makers, educators, and other professionals.
- Opportunities to present work publicly.
- Space and time to refine and significantly enhance a portfolio and CV.
- The option to (co-)teach a course during the spring semester.

The individual selected for the fellowship will be expected to:

- Use the space and time the fellowship offers to significantly enhance a portfolio of documentary work (taking the form of fieldwork, production, and/or archival research, teaching expansion of MFA work), and to work closely with CDS faculty and staff to expand professional networks, capacities, and reach.
- Contribute to a creative, open environment by building relationships, engaging in dialogue, and sharing lived experiences.
- Spend at least 70 percent of the time in residence at CDS and participate in program activities (e.g., DDP weekly meetings).
- Engage in ongoing reflection on successes, challenges, and overall experience to help us gauge program impact.
- Mentor and engage with younger or otherwise less experienced documentarians, including a cohort of Emerging Documentary Artists.
- Present work produced during the fellowship through an exhibition, performance, reading, and/or artist's or author's talk.

Fellowships for Individual Artists and Collectives, Socially Engaged Art

Fellowships for Individual Artists and Collectives, Socially Engaged Art
Deadline: November 16

A Blade of Grass
New York, NY

We believe in the power of socially engaged artists to participate meaningfully in creating a more just, equitable, sustainable, joyful, and compassionate future. We know this means that artists must take time and care to develop relationships built on mutual trust, as well as work with diverse non-arts partners and communities. We understand there are no ready-made roadmaps or guaranteed outcomes for this type of work, and are committed to learning how artists navigate these processes and relationships.

Our fellowship program is meant to support courageous artists in creating exchanges, experiences, and structures that highlight seemingly intractable social problems, inspire audiences, and energize folks to participate in and sustain long-term social change work. This is hard and time-consuming organizational, intellectual, and emotional work.

For these reasons, beginning this year we are separating our financial support to fellows from our content and audience-building work for the field into two separate programs. This decision reflects our dual commitment to supporting artists who engage in high risk and high trust work that wouldn’t benefit from increased visibility of the process, as well as to producing high quality video, web, and print content, and experiences that push the discourse and expand audience for the field of socially engaged art.

We are committed to providing relatively unrestricted funding that incorporates a collaborative research component. Field research conducted by ABOG’s Director of Field Research replaces grant reporting written by the artist, and is grounded in the goals and areas of inquiry defined by the artist and the perspective of project participants.

Selected Fellows will receive:

  • $20,000 in minimally restricted support

  • Comprehensive written Field Research Reports that utilize action research methodology

  • Expenses Paid 2-day Orientation Retreat in NYC to engage a cohort of peer artists and ABOG staff and board (a requirement for the fellowship)

  • Ongoing invitations to networking events for all ABOG Fellows and Alumni twice annually (attendance voluntary)

  • Ongoing promotion of fellow’s projects through ABOG social media networks and website

In addition to direct artist support, another primary goal of ABOG is to make the “invisible” parts of socially engaged art visible. We do this through documentary films, publications, web content, and public programming.

Successful applicants have a mature body of work that reveals a mastery of techniques, methods, processes and/or materials, as well as demonstrates developed concepts, ideas, and/or themes. Proposals need to address a clear direction or question for pursuit in applicant’s work and take into account the public-facing nature of the program (we highly recommend applicants visit the museum and talk to current residents). Successful applicants also have an artistic practice that aligns with the mission of the museum to celebrate creative processes through which materials are crafted into works that enhance contemporary life. Key attributes for practices that align with the museum’s mission are: Innovation that drives 21st century creative production, the highest level of skill and workmanship, and an emphasis on cross-disciplinary approaches to production.

Princeton Arts Fellowship 2019-2021

Princeton Arts Fellowship
Deadline: September 18

Princeton Arts Fellowships, funded in part by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, David E. Kelley Society of Fellows in the Arts, and the Maurice R. Greenberg Scholarship Fund, will be awarded to artists whose achievements have been recognized as demonstrating extraordinary promise in any area of artistic practice and teaching. Applicants should be early career composers, conductors, musicians, choreographers, visual artists, filmmakers, poets, novelists, playwrights, designers, directors and performance artists–this list is not meant to be exhaustive–who would find it beneficial to spend two years teaching and working in an artistically vibrant university community.

Princeton Arts Fellows spend two consecutive academic years (September 1st – July 1st) at Princeton University and formal teaching is expected. The normal work assignment will be to teach one course each semester subject to approval by the Dean of the Faculty, but fellows may be asked to take on an artistic assignment in lieu of a class, such as directing a play or creating a dance with students. Although the teaching load is light, our expectation is that Fellows will be full and active members of our community, committed to frequent and engaged interactions with students during the academic year.

An $81,000 a year stipend is provided. Fellowships are not intended to fund work leading to an advanced degree. One need not be a U.S. citizen to apply.  Holders of Ph.D. degrees from Princeton are not eligible to apply.

All applicants must submit a resume or curriculum vitae, a personal statement of 500 words about how you would hope to use the two years of the fellowship at this moment in your career, and contact information for three references. In addition, work samples are requested to be submitted online (i.e., writing sample, images of your work, video links to performances, etc.)

Applicants can only apply for the Princeton Arts Fellowship twice in a lifetime.

John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship

John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship
Deadline: September 17

Guggenheim Fellowships are intended for individuals who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts. Guggenheim Fellowships are grants to selected individuals made for a minimum of six months and a maximum of twelve months. Since the purpose of the Guggenheim Fellowship program is to help provide Fellows with blocks of time in which they can work with as much creative freedom as possible, grants are made freely. No special conditions attach to them, and Fellows may spend their grant funds in any manner they deem necessary to their work. The United States Internal Revenue Service, however, does require the Foundation to ask for reports from its Fellows at the end of their Fellowship terms.

The Foundation receives approximately 3,000 applications each year. Although no one who applies is guaranteed success in the competition, there is no prescreening: all applications are reviewed. Approximately 175 Fellowships are awarded each year.

During the rigorous selection process, applicants will first be pooled with others working in the same field, and examined by experts in that field: the work of artists will be reviewed by artists, that of scientists by scientists, that of historians by historians, and so on. The Foundation has a network of several hundred advisers, who either meet at the Foundation offices to look at applicants’ work, or receive application materials to read offsite. These advisers, all of whom are themselves former Guggenheim Fellows, then submit reports critiquing and ranking the applications in their respective fields. Their recommendations are then forwarded to and weighed by a Committee of Selection, which then determines the number of awards to be made in each area. Occasionally, no application in a given area is considered strong enough to merit a Fellowship.

The Committee of Selection then forwards its recommendations to the Board of Trustees for final approval. The successful candidates in the United States and Canada competition are announced in early April.

The Foundation understands advanced professionals to be those who as writers, scholars, or scientists have a significant record of publication, or as artists, playwrights, filmmakers, photographers, composers, or the like, have a significant record of exhibition or performance of their work.

The Foundation understands the performing arts to be those in which an individual interprets work created by others. Accordingly, the Foundation will provide Fellowships to composers but not conductors, singers, or instrumentalists; choreographers but not dancers; filmmakers, playwrights, and performance artists who create their own work but not actors or theater directors.

The amounts of grants vary, and the Foundation does not guarantee it will fully fund any project. Working with a fixed annual budget, the Foundation strives to allocate its funds as equitably as possible, taking into consideration the Fellows’ other resources and the purpose and scope of their plans. Members of the teaching profession receiving sabbatical leave on full or part salary are eligible for appointment, as are those holding other fellowships and appointments at research centers.

The Foundation only supports individuals. It does not make grants to institutions or organizations.

This Fellowship will incubate the individual’s leadership abilities, bringing resources to bear and spotlighting the power of individual action for growth and change. The nature of the awarded fellow’s work will determine the appropriate model for distribution partnerships.

Catchlight Fellowship for Social Change

Catchlight Fellowship
Deadline: January 31

In contrast to the above fellowships which have a specific focus, the third 2018 Catchlight Fellowship is open to lens-based artists working on any social justice issue globally. This fellowship is aimed at the discovery and communication of issues not only of today, but of tomorrow — stories we don’t know about yet, or that we are revisiting through an entirely new lens. 

We will recognize a visual storyteller whose work drives change around a social issue they are passionate about and there are no issues or methodology that CatchLight prioritizes over another. Applicants will have chosen their own themes and issues, and proposed unique and compelling methods of creation and distribution. This Fellow will be partnered with The Pulitzer Center On Crisis Reporting and therefore will focus both on media and education as distribution for the work.

We invite applicants to interpret these themes broadly and encourage proposals from visual storytellers working in diverse creative mediums.

It is America’s laboratory for the fiscal pressures shaping our housing, jobs and education and a rapidly changing future.
