We are excited to announce the creation of the BAC Artivism Fellowship to support artist-activists using their tools to have an impact on the world around them. The Fellowship will provide financial support, mentorship, networking opportunities, and education workshops to ten artists over the course of six months and will culminate in a digital presentation of their work.
The inaugural class of fellows will specifically support Black female artist-activists, both cisgender and transgender, focused on issues related to systemic racism and criminal justice reform. Applications will be open to any individual based in the United States and will be open to all artists that center their work in stories and narrative.
The nominating committee for this year's fellowship includes:
Zakiyah Ansari, Amber Iman, Andy Jean, Imani Mfalme, and Liza Jessie Peterson
Applications and additional details about the fellowship, including other members of the committee will be announced later in August.
