Fellowships to Delaware artists to recognize and support creative excellence. Funding is intended to advance the careers of both rising and established artists in a range of artistic genres, including folk, literary, media, performing, and visual arts. Fellowships are awarded for demonstrated creativity and skill in an art form with artistic quality as the primary determinant.
Fellowships are designed to enable artists to purchase materials and equipment, allocate working time, or fulfill other needs that will allow them to advance their careers (excluding foreign travel and lobbying). Fellowship recipients are required to present examples of their work to the public during their Fellowship year.
Nineteen disciplines are offered in Fiscal Year 2022:
*Folk Arts: Artists whose work expresses the traditions of their ethnic, occupational, religious, family, or geographic group and whose skills have generally developed without formal instruction or institutional direction are eligible to apply. Being self-taught does not automatically qualify one as a folk artist. Folk Arts applications may be switched to another discipline based on the recommendations of a Folk Arts specialist prior to the adjudication process. If you are unsure whether you qualify as a folk artist, contact Roxanne Stanulis, Program Officer.
**Music: Contemporary Performance is a new discipline this year. For Solo Recital and Contemporary Performance, if the applicant appears with another performer(s) on the submitted samples, the applicant must be easily identifiable as the main performer in the performances.
