Mellon Indigenous Arts Fellowships offer UVA faculty the opportunity to pursue creative and scholarly projects in the arts. Indigenous Arts Fellows will be able to forge new research initiatives with the museums and their collections, and jointly organize workshops, exhibitions and courses on interdisciplinary themes related to the Global Indigenous arts.
This first call for applications seeks to appoint up to five Arts Fellows working on the theme of the Indigenous Arts to begin Summer or Fall 2017. Additional calls for applications for this program will be announced in Fall 2017 and Fall 2018 to select up to five fellows per year.
The applications deadline is January 30, 2017. Please submit proposals to Amanda Wagstaff at firstname.lastname@example.org and feel free to contact her with any questions.
