The Black Earth Institute is seeking 6 new fellows for 2018-2021
The Black Earth Institute is a community of creative, committed artists and a grant resource. Established in 2005, BEI is dedicated to supporting art in re-forging the links between spirit, earth and society, for art and its makers create the space for changing minds and the world. With this in mind, BEI endeavors to bring together a group of artists who are activists, whether in their own fields or in general causes, to foment change.
BEI seeks fellows from different genres, such as literary, dramatic and media artists; performance artists making a political statement; or journalists addressing the urgent social and environmental issues facing the planet. We seek fellows from different points in their life journeys, be they published or tenured, or new break-through artists, who have gained or are gaining recognition for leadership. BEI will continue its legacy of including fellows representing diverse communities: academic, activist, gender-identified, racial, ethnic and international.
The fellowship lasts for three years, and includes a funded annual retreat, funding for a specific arts project, and editing an issue of About Place Journal. For more information and to apply, click here.
