Came across an opportunity for Native artists and filmmakers.
2013 NACF Artist Fellowships
NACF embraces the notion that Native artists offer profound contributions to intellectual inquiry and community sustainability. Native artists are at thresholds of exploration in unfolding creative terrains. They are deepening their impact on the field of contemporary arts practice and are forging new recognition in national and global communities. Through the fellowship program, we hope to foster the creativity of our Indigenous artists, allowing the opportunity for study, reflection, experimentation, and discovery.
We are currently accepting applications for the 2013 awards. Please see the following criteria:
DEADLINE: June 21, 2012
Artists must demonstrate excellence, having made a significant impact in their discipline, earned respect from their colleagues, and achieved recognition in the field.
