Partners in Art (PIA) is proud to support Wildseed Centre for Art and Activism’s second iteration of the Black Arts Fellowship. Taking place from March 2023 – March 2024, this expansive interdisciplinary program will be offered to eight emerging and mid-career Black artists. 2023 fellows will be announced in February.
This paid 12-month fellowship curates intensive residencies, workshops, mentorship, creation time, and presentation opportunities to offer fellows the space for deep, collaborative, and playful exploration and creation in the community. This fellowship emerges from the intersection of art and activism.
Artists are invited to infuse their practices with knowledge of ancestral and contemporary Black struggles for liberation; to imagine their work within the projects of abolition and decolonization; to deepen their understanding of care and community commitments in the arts; and to experience the kind of joy that comes from moving with, for and fully alongside other Black kin.
