Oregon Humanities, in partnership with Oregon Community Foundation, is currently accepting applications for the second round of the Fields Artist Fellowship program.
The program offers two years of financial support to Oregon-based artists who are in a pivotal moment or inflection point in their careers.
Four artists will be awarded two-year fellowships to advance their artistic practice while developing creative and meaningful ways to address and respond to the opportunity gap in Oregon. In addition, eight finalists will each receive a one-time award of $10,000.
Each fellow will receive $100,000 over the course of the two-year term to support their exploration of and response to the opportunity gap in their region, participation in cohort gatherings and documentation of their experiences and projects.
Artists of all disciplines are encouraged to apply, including writers, filmmakers, visual artists, multimedia artists, culture bearers and performance artists.
Eligibility requirements and information on how to apply can be found at oregonhumanities.org.
Applications will be accepted through Monday, February 15. A selection committee will review applications and award the fellowships by July 2021.
