Headlands Center For The Arts
Fellowships to California artists and writers in eligible regions to further their careers. This is a collaborative fellowship in which the fellows work with the funding source to create a program to suit their needs. Priority will be given to mid-career and established artists. Eligible artists and writers must be residents of the Bay Area.
The Bay Area Fellowship Program (BAF) represents a radical departure from Headlands’ traditional modes of working with artists. The BAF will engage each artist as a full collaborator in designing and producing their own Fellowship engagement, bringing them into the Headlands community as thought partners while developing an experience tailored to their specific needs. Applicants should come with a desire to work closely and deeply with their Fellowship cohort and Headlands staff to thoughtfully and iteratively design the vision, aims, schedule, scope, and allocation of resources for their own Fellowship. In short, Fellows will partner with Headlands to produce the nature of its support.
This program aims to deepen support for Bay Area artists; engage artist Fellows as partners in collaboration with Headlands; center Bay Area Fellows among Headlands’ national and international artist cohorts; and demonstrate Headlands’ commitment to supporting creative practitioners holistically through provision of financial support, time, space, and community. The program will also evolve over time, as Headlands continues to learn how best to work with and support future Fellows.
In addition to providing access as needed to Headlands resources such as studios, meeting spaces, and staff expertise, support includes an annual stipend and additional financial resources to cover the tax burden of that stipend, health insurance, and potential Fellowship activities and resources, such as professional and project development, fabrication, or travel.
