We received the following announcement from A Blade of Grass:
ABOG-DR Fund Joint Fellowship in Criminal Justice
We’re thrilled to announce an additional 2016 ABOG Fellowship, the ABOG-David Rockefeller Fund Joint Fellowship in Criminal Justice! This additional fellowship will be available specifically to artists or artist collectives with projects that address criminal justice issues. We’ve now added in specific eligibility criteria for the ABOG-DR Fund Joint Fellowship in Criminal Justice to the application page of our 2016 open call, and applicants who meet this criteria will automatically be considered. Individuals and collectives who have already submitted applications that are eligible will also automatically be considered. The application process for all 2016 fellowships remains the same, via this online form.
Why Criminal Justice?
This joint fellowship is the result of a year-long planning process with David Rockefeller Fund, which examined the transformational roles artists play in a criminal justice context. To be considered for the ABOG-DR Fund Joint Fellowship in Criminal Justice, artists must meet the eligibility criteria for the ABOG Fellowship for Socially Engaged Art and be working within the criminal justice system; on prison reform or re-entry; addressing the systems that specifically promote mass incarceration; or rethinking the philosophies behind incarceration. Learn more on the application page of our website.
