Define American Artist Fellowship

Supporting immigrant artists in developing their practices and connecting with their local communities.

Art is a universal language that plays a critical role in shaping narratives about American identity. Define American created this fellowship to support immigrant artists in their community engagement efforts, as well as provide training and development as they further develop and hone their artistic craft.

Artists selected for the Define American Immigrant Artist Fellowship will be connected with resources, gain national exposure, and receive a stipend while working with community-based organizations in their area to continue building their capacity as cultural change-makers and show how art can catalyze positive and lasting narrative change.
