The 2017 ENGAGING ARTISTS FELLOWSHIP is an artist in residence program for emerging New York City-based artists interested in addressing the intersecting issues of labor, immigration, globalization, and economic justice in their creative practice.
The goal of the 4 month fellowship is to prepare artists for long-term activist and socially-engaged work in partnership with advocacy and social service organizations, coalitions, unions, and groups of neighbors throughout the five boroughs. Ideal candidates must live in New York City and have an interest in or dedication to the interrogation of topics such as: value, wage, debt, livelihood and family life, workers rights, labor, and alternative economies as they relate to the fellow’s respective communities and the larger landscapes of migration, neoliberalism, and/or the economies of the contemporary art market(s).
