Artist as Activist: Fellows | Robert Rauschenberg Foundation

March 12, 2015

Grantee News From: The Art of Revolution:

Congratulations to The Art of Revolution for receiving one of the six Art as Activist Fellowships in 2015!

The Artist as Activist Fellowship provides independent artists and art collectives with a demonstrated commitment to applying their creative work to the public sphere up to $100,000 over two years along with access to opportunities for professional advancement. Fellows are identified through a highly competitive open call for proposals. In 2015 more than 600 applicants from 42 states, spanning artistic genres and thematic focus, were narrowed to six fellows with the help of 30 field experts from across the U.S. This inaugural cohort of Fellows is tackling timely issues—from climate change to caste-based sexual violence to mass incarceration.

How to Apply
Guidelines for the next round of Artist as Activist grant opportunities will be released this fall. To receive the application guidelines and instructions as soon as they are announced, please be sure you are on our mailing list. You can also follow the foundation on Twitter and Facebook.
