Calls for Proposals for Providence Public Library 2018 Creative Fellow

Providence Public Library offers an annual Creative Fellowship for an artist to create new work with a topical tie-in to the library’s exhibition and program series. Creative Fellows perform in-depth research in our historical collections, using images and text as source material and/or inspiration.

In addition to new work, a successful Creative Fellowship results in innovative, engaging programming, and measurable instances of engagement and learning both on the part of the fellow and on the part of other community members. Our hope is that a stipend alongside supported, immersive research allows the Fellow to explore new directions, topics, or methods in their own work and creative process.

The 2017 Creative Fellow will receive a stipend in the amount of $1,000, with an additional amount of up to $500 reimbursable for supplies and materials. In addition to a financial stipend and extensive research support from Special Collections staff, PPL will offer the Creative Fellow a small, locked office space with a desktop computer, which can be used during the library’s open hours. The Fellow may utilize PPL’s auditorium for rehearsal and/or performance space. Note that the auditorium has basic lighting and sound equipment/ wireless microphones.

Proposals are due October 1st. For more information, click here.

Apply for the RISD Artist Fellowship!

The RISD Museum invites local artists and designers working in any medium to apply for the 2018 artist fellowship. One selected artist will receive a stipend of $10,000, professional development support, and the opportunity to work closely with the Museum’s collections and staff members to realize a proposed project. The applications are due by August 31 at midnight.

The fellow will investigate Museum collections related to their proposed areas of interest, with support and mentorship from curatorial staff, conservators, and educators, and engage in research that benefits their personal practice and delves deeply into ideas, materials, and processes. The artist fellow will be invited to participate in staff meetings, projects and activities that help build a diverse and inclusive community.

To expand their knowledge and art-making skills, the fellow will have access to a range of resources at RISD, including support from Museum staff and access to RISD faculty, technicians, and libraries. The fellow may audit select RISD Graduate Studies courses. In collaboration with Museum staff, the fellow will share their work with the public through talks, demonstrations, performances, publications, or other formats. The proposed project shapes and defines the fellow’s time at the Museum and research requirements. A budget of $2,000 or less is offered toward project expenses.
