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.
