Call for Artists: Bay Area Fellowship Program
A radical departure: engaging artists as full collaborators to develop/produce Fellowships
Short application deadline:
* March 19
The Bay Area Fellowship Program (BAF) represents a radical departure from Headlands’ traditional modes of working with artists.
The BAF will engage artists as full collaborators in developing and producing Fellowships, bringing them into the Headlands community as thought partners while developing an experience tailored to their specific needs.
Applicants should come with a desire to work closely and deeply with their Fellowship cohort and Headlands staff to thoughtfully and iteratively design the vision, aims, schedule, scope, and allocation of resources for their own Fellowship.
In short, Fellows will partner with Headlands to produce the nature of its support.
This program aims to:
- deepen support for Bay Area artists;
- engage artist Fellows as partners in collaboration with Headlands;
- center Bay Area Fellows among Headlands’ national and international artist cohorts; and
- demonstrate Headlands’ commitment to supporting creative practitioners holistically through provision of financial support, time, space, and community.
The program will also evolve over time, as Headlands continues to learn how best to work with and support future Fellows.
Fellowships are intended to last two years and will be planned in close collaboration with participants on annual timelines.
The program will initially support three Bay Area artists, and is open to artists and writers working in any discipline.
In addition to providing access as needed to Headlands resources such as studios, meeting spaces, and staff expertise, support includes an annual stipend of $15,000 and additional financial resources to cover the tax burden of that stipend, health insurance, and potential Fellowship activities and resources, such as professional and project development, fabrication, or travel.
