Craft Research Fund Artist Fellowship
The Center for Craft’s “2023 Craft Research Fund Artist Fellowship Grant” was created to encourage, expand and support scholarly craft research in the United States. Awards of $10,000 will be granted to five artists to support research projects that advance, expand, and support the creation of new research and knowledge through craft practice.
Proposals are welcome from mid-career artists, artisans, designers, makers, sculptures, and so on, who identify their practice within the field of craft. The Center, and by extension this grant, recognizes craft to be a particular approach to making with a strong connection to materials, skill, and process. We believe in empowering artists, makers, scholars, and curators to grow the field, embracing new definitions, technologies, and ideas while honoring craft’s history and relationship to the handmade. Craft, in all its forms, demonstrates creativity, ingenuity, and practical intelligence. It contributes to the economic and social wellbeing of communities, connects us to our cultural histories, and is integral to building a sustainable future.
Applicants must be:
- 21 years of age or older
- Eligible to receive taxable income in the U.S.
- Residing and working in the U.S. for the last two years and for the duration of the Fellowship period
- Mid-career: Artist must self-identify as mid-career
Application deadline is 10/21/22. For more information, visit centerforcraft.org/grants-and-fellowships/craft-research-fund-artist-fellowship
