The annual Fine Arts Work Center Fellowship welcomes 20 emerging artists and writers to live and work in Provincetown from October 1 – April 30. Fellows receive a modest monthly stipend, intended to offset personal expenses and clear the way for seven months of uninterrupted time and space in which to advance their practice.
We invite you to contribute to our April Fellowship Fund, a month-long initiative to support the extraordinary Fellows who enrich our creative community and go on to shape contemporary culture.
