Mellon Projecting All Voices Fellowship

Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts and ASU Gammage at Arizona State University seek four artists from the Southwest region with field experience, interested in exploring issues of racial equity in the arts, desiring to engage with an educational institution and Arizona’s communities. The deadline to apply is March 15.

Projecting All Voices (PAV), an initiative of the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts supported by ASU Gammage, aims to support racial equity and inclusion in arts and design so that our nation’s cultural life honors and represents the full creative diversity of our country’s population. PAV provides opportunities for artists and designers to advance ideas and projects that investigate identity, cultural heritage, power, race, policy, ability and/or place and community. PAV also focuses on curricular change in arts and design colleges as well as civic and social practices in arts and design that create equitable communities. PAV seeks transformation in educational and cultural institutions to enable the full expression of all creative voices.

A program of PAV, the Mellon Fellowship supports underrepresented artists from the Southwest region who are interested in exploring issues of racial equity in the arts, engaging with an educational institution, and participating in an intergenerational mentorship cohort. Fellows will work with communities underrepresented in higher education and art institutions as that work relates to their own interests and creative practices. Fellows will also inform conversations about how educational and cultural institutions must adapt to prepare, support and advance the creative voices of a changing America through an equitable lens and framework of practice.

Mellon Projecting All Voices Fellows will receive: a $38,000 honorarium, travel funding and support, mentorship options, opportunities to co-develop a visiting artist series, coaching to develop their documentation skills, access to ASU resources and opportunities to develop and present their work.
