At the midway point and at the end of the one-year period, each artist will provide a one-page narrative and discussion of the artist’s creative achievements within that year and where that may lead. They may also be asked to participate in a public presentation.

Reporting requirements:

  • June: One-page mid-year narrative report and discussion about how the Fellowship is affecting your work and career as an artist. Please email to James Anderson.
  • December: One-page final narrative report and discussion about your Fellowship year and the way in which it has affected your art practice and your career. Please email to James Anderson.
