Massachusetts Cultural Council: Artist Fellowships

Massachusetts Cultural Council



A Periodic eNewsletter from the Massachusetts Cultural Council

Artist Fellowships: Apply Now in Music Composition, Playwriting, Sculpture/Installation

The 2011 MCC Artist Fellowships program guidelines are now available. This year, the competitive, anonymously judged program offers fellowships of $7,500 and finalist awards of $500, as direct support to individual artists in recognition of artistic excellence. Learn more about Artist Fellowships.

Applications are currently being accepted in the categories of Music Composition, Playwriting, and Sculpture/Installation. Deadline: September 20, 2010.

Applications in the categories of Crafts, Film & Video, and Photography will be accepted beginning December 1, 2010. Deadline: January 24, 2011.

Not sure in which category to apply? Read the Discipline Definitions, and if you have any questions, contact staff.

This deadline schedule is a change from past cycles, so please pass along this announcement to any Massachusetts artist you know who might be interested in applying.

Every week, we round up a list of intriguing opportunities for artists – competitions, calls to artists, information sessions, residencies, and more.

We’ve also featured the voices of some of the most exciting artists at work in the Commonwealth. The latest: an interview with Joan Leegant on the writing craft and her new novel Wherever You Go, bite-sized Q&As with writer Ilie Ruby and painters from MCC’s Painted Visions exhibition, and a Studio View with fascinating mixed-media artist Leah Giberson.
