About the Fellowship
Forge Project, a Native-led organization whose mandate is to cultivate and advance Indigenous leadership in arts and culture, is pleased to announce its open call for applications for its 2024 funded fellowship program for Indigenous cultural workers broadly.
The Forge Project Fellowship is a cohort of six Indigenous individuals that represent a broad diversity of cultural practices, participatory research, organizing models, and geographical contexts that honor Indigenous pasts as well as build Native futures.
Two of the fellowships are awarded to enrolled tribal members, First and Second Line Descendants of the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohican Indians in recognition of the peoples on whose homelands Forge Project is situated and to encourage site-specific and relational projects. Each Forge Project Fellow receives a total of $25,000 toward their practice and will have full access to the Forge Project site, libraries, and lending collection of living Indigenous artists during a residency stay of up to three weeks.
