Q. & A. Session.

Question: Why should an artist care about fellowships? 

Answer:

Fellowships are usually one to two year teaching positions that come with a studio or at least access to working space and equipment related to your practice as an artist. Sometimes a fellowship is simply an award that is bestowed upon an individual for having achieved a certain level of recognition in the field of contemporary art. If it is the former, a fellowship often represents the first opportunity an artist has to teach, travel and meet a new community of artists after completing their education. If it is the latter, fellowships are often associated with a long line of talented individuals who have received the same award for their achievements. And while fellowships vary radically in award granting power, terms and conditions, they are almost always a sure stepping stone to growth and maturity as an artist.
