The Arts Council will award up to 18 Fellowships of $5,000 each in six categories in 2022. Categories are: multisensory art; community engagement art; contemporary craft; performance art: Mississippi Delta Blues contemporary songwriting or score; visual arts: graphic novel or narrative; literary arts: flash fiction or flash creative nonfiction.
Fellowships are unconditional, non-matching grants made directly to individual artists. Awarded annually, these fellowships recognize the artistic creative excellence of the recipient’s work and enable the selected artists to devote more time and energy to creating their art and mastering their craft.
Application will be accepted until April 16, 2022.
