Halcyon, a non-profit based in Washington DC, is launching a new residential artist fellowship dedicated to the intersection of arts and social-engagement.

The Halcyon Arts Lab Fellowship is a nine-month program established to provide emerging artists with time and space to explore new ideas and ambitious projects in an environment of independent learning, study, and collaboration. The fellowship is designed to provide support and resources to emerging artists who desire to develop projects that promote meaningful social impact, and for those who wish to follow the path of leadership in the field of socially-engaged art.

Why apply? Fellows accepted into the program will have access to the following: • A dedicated studio to concentrate on independent learning and creative practice. • $18k financial scholarship to support living and material costs • Nine months of offsite residential accommodation (eligible for non-DC residents only) • A curriculum of classes that provides skills training in negotiating, marketing, and fundraising • Mentorship and critique from an experienced arts professional • Workshops and lectures with a broad content of art topics in the public realm, from urban planning and policy, to design thinking and social justice. • Mentorship with DC high school students to provide guidance, instruction and inspiration to the next generation • Opportunities to collaborate with fellow artists, social entrepreneurs and our program partner organizations in Washington, DC.

There is no application fee. To apply visit www.halcyonhouse.org/arts-lab/apply
