3. The AICAD/NOAA Fisheries Art+Science Fellowship

The AICAD/NOAA Fisheries Art+Science Fellowship is a grant to support a 9-month engagement, up to five-years post-graduation, for an artist/designer with a professional Bachelors or Masters degree including BFA/BDes/BArch or MAF/MDes/MArch from any US member school within the AICAD consortium. The Fellow will be expected to produce artistic and/or design work in response to a specific concern or “challenge” presented by NOAA Fisheries. The selected artist/designer will be part of an interdisciplinary body of researchers, staff, and community groups addressing a specific ecological issue, defined as the “challenge” below. The successful candidate will complete a 6-week residency embedded with NOAA staff during June-July 2020 in the Pacific Northwest, followed by a six-month period from August 2020 to February 2021 in their home location to research, produce, and distribute creative work in response to the scientific and policy issues the artist/designer will be exposed to. Consideration of the experience as an open-ended artistic response with the option for multimedia practice, including but not limited to performance, print, painting, video, installation, social engaged art practices etc, and some combination of design and/or design communication can be expected of the Fellow. The Fellow will be expected to present a formal artist talk, produce some written materials, and document their experience and process. Potential publication of the artist’s work and written experiences is anticipated. Specific communication materials will also be developed in collaboration with NOAA Fisheries communications team.
Challenge: Recovering Pacific Salmon by Working with Communities to Return Populations to Blocked Habitats 
Consider: As an artist/ designer how can you imagine ways to engage community to support the return of Pacific Salmon populations into habitats they no longer have access to?
