The Native Arts and Cultures Foundation (NACF) is calling for entries for the 2014 NACF Artist Fellowships. Online applications are due by 3 May 2013.
“Through the fellowship program, we hope to foster the creative voices of our indigenous artists,” said foundation Program Director Reuben Tomás Roqueñi (Yaqui/Mexican). “We believe in the beauty and inspiration of the work of Native artists and the fellowships provide a significant resource for their practice.”
The $20,000 fellowships recognize the creativity and expression of exceptional Native artists who have made significant impact in the field. American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian artists are encouraged to apply for this unique national fellowship honoring excellence by Native artists in six disciplines: dance, filmmaking, literature, music, traditional arts and visual arts.
Artists who are members of federally and state-recognized U.S. tribes, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian communities can review criteria in full and apply by the 3 May 2013 deadline at: http://nacf.us/2014-fellowships.
The NACF will announce ecipients in November 2013.
