Information Session: Fellowship, Media Award, and Parent Artist Award
May 12 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
In 2021, Kala will award six artists a $3,000 stipend, unlimited access to Kala’s facilities for up to twelve months, one Kala class, and a culminating show in the Kala Gallery. The award is geared towards supporting artists in completing specific projects or bodies of work that would benefit from Kala’s specialized equipment in printmaking and digital media. This year with the aid of the Sustainable Arts Foundation, one of the six awards will go towards supporting a parent artist!
Program Period: The 2021-2022 Fellowship residency period is October 1, 2021 through September 30, 2022. Artists must be able to schedule a residency during that time. The group exhibition schedule is to be determined.
2021 Competition: The 2021 Fellowship competition will be chaired by Kala’s Artist Residency Manager Meg Pohlod. The jury is made up of Kala’s Artistic Director Mayumi Hamanaka, Print Public alumni artist Imin Yeh, and invited Bay Area arts professional, Bamidele Agbasegbe Demerson, Chief Curator of the African American Museum and Library at Oakland.
In this online event we will discuss how to navigate the Slideroom application, jury rubrics, projects of current fellowship artists, and any questions that come up in the duration of the hour. We will also discuss the deadline for applying.
