Kresge Artist Fellowships General Questions
Collaborative applicants submit only one application that includes one collaborative resume, one collaborative discipline statement, one collaborative artist statement, one collaborative community impact statement, one collaborative narrative statement and one set of collaborative work samples.
Should a collaborative artist group receive a fellowship, the $25,000 award is split evenly among the collaborators. Each collaborative artist must meet all eligibility requirements listed in the selection criteria. Please see the Guide for further information.
- The Kresge Artist Fellowships award both emerging and established artists. If you are an emerging artist, your artist resume may be brief. If you are an established artist, you may have to select the most notable accomplishments.
- Often, accomplishments are listed in reverse chronological order, starting with the most recent. It is also common to order your resume by headings (i.e. performances, discography, screenings, premieres, filmography, honors, awards, etc.) or by listing the most important experiences first.
- It is not uncommon to have pursued study without completing a degree; you may still want to include these periods of study in your resume.
- If you are including collaborative works in your artist resume, please note your specific contribution to the work.
- Before pasting your resume in the Slideroom field, please remove all formatting, excess spacing and punctuation because they will be counted as characters and only basic formatting will be saved.
- Your artist statement should provide clarity and insight into your art work, so avoid obscure or complex language that may confuse the panelists.
- An artist statement can address one body of work or multiple bodies of work that share a theme.
- Artist statements are generally written in the first person and in present tense.
- Successful artist statements often respond directly to the work samples submitted in your application.
- An artist statement should evolve just as an artist’s work evolves. Be sure your artist statement reflects your current work.
- How your work impacts the community should evolve as your work evolves. You may speak to the communities you impact currently and also those you hope to impact in the future.
- You do not have to propose and outline a specific project you’d like to complete in the narrative statement.
