The Broadway Advocacy Coalition (BAC) has announced that applications are now open for the inaugural BAC Artivism Fellowship.
The Fellowship is designed to support artist-activists using their tools to have an impact on the world around them, providing financial support, mentorship, networking opportunities and education workshops. The inaugural class of fellows will specifically support Black women, cisgender and transgender, who are focused on issues related to systemic racism and criminal justice reform.
Applications are open to artists based in the United States who center their work in stories and narrative.
The fellowship, which will begin in December 2020 and run through May 2021, will support a group of women over the course of six months and will culminate in a digital presentation of their work. The nominating committee for the fellowship includes Zakiyah Ansari, Amber Iman, Andy Jean, Imani Mflame and Liza Jessie Peterson. Applications are due by September 22, 2020 at 11:59PM ET.
The Broadway musical Wicked is the lead sponsor of the BAC Artivism Fellowship. For more information, visit https://www.bwayadvocacycoalition.org/artivismfellowship.
