Columbian College of Arts and Sciences at The George Washington University (GW) offers an Arts Fellowship available to support a mid-career artist and/or scholar. Fields may include, but are not limited to the following: visual arts, performance art, musical composition or performance, filmmaking, creative writing, theatre, dance, and scholars in the arts. This new fellowship has been established to provide a platform for a resident artist/scholar to work together with a small group of GW faculty (Incubator Studio Fellows) and students, as well as other members of the Washington, DC arts community. The Fellow will not be assigned to teach any courses; instead, he/she will be expected to produce new work and/or scholarship, present at least one public lecture, regularly interact with graduate and undergraduate students, and fully participate in activities with GW faculty in the Incubator Studio Fellowship Program.
The concept for the inaugural Resident Artist/Scholar Program and Incubator Studio Fellowship Program (2013 Spring/Summer) will be determined through the submission process, which will consist of proposals from individual artists and/or scholars and GW faculty. A primary goal is to foster an interdisciplinary approach to creative research and scholarship over an intensive six-month period, a physical and intellectual space for the development of meaningful artistic and scholarly linkages across the arts and other disciplines, both on and off campus. The final result of the collaboration between the Resident Artist/Scholar Fellow and the Incubator Studio Fellows may result in a single project in which all fellows contribute equally or independent projects that have been developed through an ongoing intellectual exchange.
The Resident Artist/Scholar Fellow will be provided with a stipend ($30,000.00), a modest studio/office on the Foggy Bottom Campus, as well as a creative project/research fund (up to $5,000.00) to cover expenses directly related to the realization of the work done while in residence. The Fellow is expected to be in residence in Washington, DC, at GW during the term of the fellowship (January 14 – June 30, 2013). Deadline for receipt of application for the Resident Artist/Scholar Fellowship is September 14, 2012. To apply, send:
· Summary of proposal (150 words)
· Extended creative project/research proposal (1-3 pages)
· Samples of past creative project/research samples related to proposal via URL or website (include link at the end of Summary)
