Description: The Individual Artist Fellowships program intends to recognize, uplift, and celebrate California artists. Fellowships will support artists from a broad spectrum of artistic practices, backgrounds, geographies and communities, whose work addresses themes including but not limited to race, diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility. In doing so, the CAC will showcase the centrality of artists’ leadership in generating social impact and the evolution of our traditional and contemporary cultures. The program identifies three career tiers at which artists may benefit from this support: 

  • CAC Emerging Artist Fellows (2-4 years artistic practice; $5,000; ~70 awards); 
  • CAC Established Artist Fellows (4-10 years; $10,000; ~50 awards); and 
  • CAC Legacy Artist Fellows (10+years; $50,000; ~10 awards). 

Fellowship grants support individual artistic practice through unrestricted funding. See website for more information.

Award: $5,000-50,000, dependent upon category. 

Eligibility: California-based artists, 18 years of age and older, working in any artistic discipline, who reside primarily in California and have a history of artistic practice in California, are eligible. 

Deadline: April 1, 2021
