The purpose of the Performing Arts Fellowship is to acknowledge and encourage the careers of established, professional Utah artists demonstrating exceptional creativity in, and dedication to, the performing arts. The Performing Arts Fellowship Program seeks to support professional and committed Utah artists reaching pivotal moments in their artistic careers. Applicants are expected to demonstrate why now is the appropriate time in their career for this one-time award. The Performing Arts Fellowship is not an award to support a specific art project, recognition of lifetime achievement, or for artists just beginning their careers.
Two $10,000 fellowships will be awarded to performing artists annually. Performing arts disciplines will rotate every three years between dance, music, and theatre. This inaugural year will focus on music applicants.
Applying artists must demonstrate professionalism in their practice through quality work samples and documentation. Artists must be Utah residents not enrolled in a degree- or certificate-granting program.
Application opens January 15, 2020 and will close February 12, 2020.
Please read the guidelines thoroughly.
