Program: Oregon Community Foundation (OCF) & Oregon Humanities (OH) Fields Artist Fellowship
Eligibility: Artists of all media may submit a proposal, including multidisciplinary artists, writers, filmmakers, visual artists, multimedia artists, cultural heritage artists, musicians and performing artists. Other requirements include the following:
- Five or more years of professional practice in an artistic discipline or combination of disciplines
- Three years of residence in Oregon and the intent to reside in Oregon for the majority of the fellowship term (May 1, 2019 to April 30, 2021)
- Demonstrable evidence of artistic practice that has the potential to create engagement with community organizations and/or address community concerns
Details: OCF and OH are instituting a significant new fellowship program for emerging to mid-career Oregon-based artists. Beginning in 2019, OCF and OH will work together to award four Fields Artist Fellows $100,000 each over a two-year period, along with robust convening and learning opportunities.
The hope is that this opportunity will enable Fields Artist Fellows to take their art to a higher level and pursue artistic work that responds in meaningful ways to the opportunity gap in Oregon.
Over this initial two-year term, Oregon Community Foundation and Oregon Humanities anticipate that the four Fields Artist Fellows will represent different regions of the state and advance their artistic practice while addressing the opportunity gap within these regions.
