Individual Artist Fellowships Available From The Tennessee Arts Commission

NASHVILLE - - Individual Artist Fellowships are available from the Tennessee Arts Commission for Fiscal Year 2014 (July 1, 2013 – June 30, 2014).  Application must be submitted electronically, and must be received by Monday, January 28, 2013 by 4:30 p.m. (CST).  The printed application and required documents must also be postmarked or hand delivered to the Tennessee Arts Commission on that date.

The award provides fellowships to outstanding professional artists who live and work in Tennessee.  No matching funds are required and no specific project has to be carried out with the funds.  The Commission anticipates that each fellowship will be $5,000.

In the coming year, the Commission may award up to two fellowships in each of the discipline categories.  Categories for the fellowships include: Craft; Dance (choreography); Design (Architecture); Literary Arts (fiction, creative nonfiction and poetry); Media (film, video, and photography); Music (composition); Theater (playwriting); and Visual Arts (two-dimensional).

Fellowship applicants must be at least 18 years of age and be legal residents of Tennessee at the time of application with a permanent Tennessee mailing address.  Individuals may apply in only one fellowship category each fiscal year.  Those artists who have received full or partial fellowships in the past may not reapply for a fellowship.

The award is designed to recognize professional artists – individuals who either by education, experience, or natural talent engage in a particular arts form or discipline.
