Created in 2015, AFCC’s Fellowship Program was established to empower emerging artists across all disciplines at critical stages in their creative lives and professional development.
The Fellowship award accepts submissions in different artistic disciplines. Artists’ Fellowships are not project grants but are instead intended to fund an artist’s vision as displayed across a single criterion of work. Fellowships are not awarded to interpretative artists such as dancers or actors, applicants must be the originators of the work, ie. choreographers and playwrights.
AFCC will grant fellowships in the following disciplines: visual arts, performance arts, and written word. Additional Fellowship information available here.
There are three review requirements for the Artist Fellowships: craftsmanship, artistic quality, and creative ability as evidenced by the original work submitted.
