Halcyon Arts Lab Fellowship for Emerging Artists Working in Art and Social Change (USA)

Working at the intersection of art and social change, Halcyon Arts Lab (Washington, DC) offers a five-month residential fellowship designed to provide support and resources to emerging artists working on projects which address issues of social justice, civic engagement, and community building. Arts Lab fellows strive to expand their practices and grow as leaders in their respective fields.

Six national and international fellows will be selected and be resident in the Halcyon Arts Lab, 1 September 2020 – 14 February 2021.

The programme is intended for emerging artists who are interested in further investigating a socially engaged practice and creating lasting connections and partnerships in Washington, DC. Halcyon defines emerging artists as an early career artist who has demonstrated promising artistic development and demonstrates dedication to their practices but is at a pivotal point in their career where they could benefit from further training and support.

Halcyon Arts Lab Fellows have access to:

  • Studio space to focus on research, learning, and creative practice.

  • A competitive financial scholarship to support living and material costs: $5000 Stipend and additional funding available for materials and programme expenses.

  • Five months of off-site residential accommodation.

  • A programme of social impact classes, entrepreneurship training, artist talks, studio visits, civic engagement opportunities, and critiques.

  • Opportunities for networking and critique from experienced professionals.

  • Collaboration and networking with fellow artists, social entrepreneurs, and programme partner organisations in Washington, DC.
