We are very proud of our long-standing partnerships with a range of individuals and foundations that ensure a rich diversity for our Core Residency program for multidisciplinary artists.
While we accept applications from everyone and do not discriminate in any way — there is no requirement to qualify for any of the fellowships below — being a Fellow carries with it a certain distinction and, in some cases, a small stipend to offset travel/materials/expenses.
