Artaxis is happy to announce the Call for Applicants for the 6th annual Artaxis Fellowship. This year, Artaxis will be offering two fellowships. Each one is worth up to $2,000 to fund a two-week summer workshop in ceramics at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts.
The fellowships will cover room, board, and tuition for a two-week workshop, and up to $500 for travel to and from Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Maine, USA.
The Fellowship is intended to increase diversity, equity, and access across the field of the ceramic arts. In particular, attention will be paid to race, gender, and socio-economic status, with unique circumstances such as wartime military service, medical conditions, and unconventional family structures also considered. Therefore, Artaxis encourages artists of diverse backgrounds and experiences to apply.
Artists 18 years of age or older, at any stage of their career. Applicant does not need to be a student.
The Fellowship is designed to offer an experience that would otherwise not be possible for the Nominee. To that end, any applicant who has attended numerous workshops, residencies, or similar experiences will not be considered “in need”.
This Fellowship is open to US-based and international applicants. Artaxis will provide international applicants with letters of invitation, but cannot offer additional funding or support with acquiring a visa.
Haystack will be requiring proof of Covid-19 vaccination for all summer workshop attendees.
Artaxis often asks Fellows to be involved in programming to help promote the fellow, their work, and the Artaxis Fellowship. If selected for the Fellowship, you agree to be involved when asked.
The 2022 Artaxis Fellowship is supported by Artaxis members and funded by Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in an effort to nurture talent within creatively driven individuals by offering financial support to underrepresented artists.
Deadline for applications: Saturday, January 15th, 2022.
