Artist as Activist

Artist as Activist provides game-changing resources to artists of all disciplines, including visual, performing, media, design, and other creative professions, who address important global challenges through their creative practice. The program is comprised of three distinct grant opportunities: individual fellowships to U.S.–based artists and art collectives with a demonstrated commitment to applying their creative work toward a social or political action; travel & research grants for similarly focused artists; and general operating support to organizations that have been exemplars in supporting artists who work at the intersection of art and change.

The online application for the 2017 Artist as Activist Two Year Fellowship is now closed.
