The ArtsEverywhere Fellowship for Artistic Journalism
The ArtsEverywhere Fellowship for Artistic Journalism is a year-long program of support for any individual artist / journalist / writer / musician / producer / collective whose work exhibits a commitment to integrating creative practice with rigorous journalistic research, writing, and multimedia production.
The fellowship will be a continuation of a line of inquiry and body of work ArtsEverywhere has been developing for the past two years — The Curse of Geography. While we do not expect the work of the fellow to replicate the stories in the series, the proposed project should conform to the approaches of reportage and long-form narrative storytelling that have been developed in collaboration with independent artists, journalists, and producers as well as cultural and academic institutions, media outlets, and international NGOs. Accepted fellows will receive support from professional artists, journalists and producers, including our editorial staff, contributors, and commissioned mentors.
Projects focused on locations in Africa, Asia, Australia, the South Pacific, South America and the Caribbean, or in under-reported parts of North America and Europe will be given preference, though the final decision will be based on the following: the merit of the overall proposal; quality background research and proof of concept; feasibility of timeline and final project; demonstrated experience creating compelling non-fiction narrative, in tandem or through quality artistic production; and measured usability of final product to lend towards positive social change in relation to sources and focus communities. Proposal submissions and final projects should be written in English. All translations will be covered by the fellow.
