Jerome Foundation Announcing the new Artist Fellowship Program

Written by:


The Jerome Foundation is pleased to announce the first round of a new Artist Fellowship program that offers flexible, two-year grants to support the creative development of early-career generative artists in the state of Minnesota and the five boroughs of New York City. Artists may apply individually or together with other members of ongoing collectives or ensembles.

The Jerome Foundation supports artists who are:

  • imaginative, rigorous, and well-executed;
  • technically proficient and exhibit a high level of craft;
  • compelling and has a distinctive vision and authentic voice;
  • connects with intended audiences/participants;
  • engaging aesthetically and experientially;
  • bold and risk-taking;
  • engaging in exploration and challenges to conventional artistic forms;
  • expanding artistic practice within the field and arts community.

The Jerome Foundation makes a distinction between generative artists (those artists responsible for artistic control in generating entirely new work, including writers, choreographers, film directors, visual artists, composers, playwrights, etc.) and interpretive artists (those who interpret or execute the work created by others, including actors, editors, dramaturgs, singers, dancers, musicians, designers, etc.). The Foundation recognizes that some artists do both generative and interpretive work. Nevertheless, the Fellowship program supports only those artists with a significant history of generative work.
