Spring 2018 Fellowship for Utopian Practice

Type: Awards, Grants, Fellowships [View all]
Posted by: Culture Push
Deadline: Fri, March 23rd, 2018


Artists and other creative professionals in NYC are encouraged to apply with ideas for projects that expand their practice beyond its traditional boundaries. The Fellowship for Utopian Practice is a process-based program that helps creative people working across disciplines develop artistic methodologies that address issues of local and global importance. See our guidelines to learn more about the Fellowship, applicant eligibility and application requirements. 

We are looking for highly interactive projects that thoughtfully engage the public and push the boundaries of how art can exist in the world. The Fellows will have a year-long tenure that begins in the late Spring of 2018. 

Begun in 2012, the Fellowship has supported projects that explore a wide range of subjects, such as: colonialism’s effect on the relationship between Dominicans and Haitians, the historic practice of redlining through labyrinth walks, creating solidarity with incarcerated individuals through choreography, and cohabitation with plants in the urban environment, and more


We take a holistic approach to the Fellowship, nurturing the artists and their creative processes through various forms of logistical, institutional and financial support, including:
-Project stipend of $1,000
-Strategic meetings with Culture Push staff
-Mentorship with experts in the field
-Marketing via the Culture Push network
-Connection to other artists in the Fellowship cohort 
-Access to Materials for the Arts
-Fiscal sponsorship, with grant application review and feedback
-Opportunity to contribute to or edit our online publication, PUSH/PULL
-Final public presentation to share your project’s development
-Chance to include your work in our exhibition series
