Creative Renewal Arts Fellowship

Deadline for submission: August 16, 2019 4:30PM Eastern

The Arts Council of Indianapolis will award $10,000 personal renewal grants this fall to 40 central Indiana artists and nonprofit arts administrators.

Now in its 11th round, the Creative Renewal Arts Fellowship program is designed to re-energize and revitalize the individuals who form the core of the central Indiana arts community. Funded by Lilly Endowment Inc., the fellowships can be used for research, instruction, conferences, apprenticeships, travel or other experiences that help recipients explore their artistry and creative journey.

Qualified applicants must meet the following criteria:

• At least three years of consecutive residence and/or work in one of the following Indiana counties: Marion, Morgan, Boone, Hamilton, Hendricks, Hancock, Johnson or Shelby;

• Primary source of income is derived from work in dance, theater, media arts, music, literature, visual art or multidisciplinary art forms;

• At least 10 years of experience in the arts and at least three years in which the applicant's primary source of income was employment in the arts.

Prospective applicants are encouraged to attend one of several free workshops this summer to learn more about the program and the application process. There is one workshop remaining: August 13, 3:30PM at the Arts Council of Indianapolis located at 924 North Pennsylvania Street in Indianapolis.

Applications are due by August 16 at 4:30PM. Recipients will be notified in November and must complete their fellowship activities between Jan. 1, 2020, and June 30, 2021.

The Creative Renewal Arts Fellowship is similar to other Lilly Endowment sabbatical-type programs aimed at pastors, teachers, and social service and youth workers. Since the program’s launch in 1999, more than 400 grants totaling more than $3.7 million have been awarded.
