Tulsa Artist Fellowship

Tulsa Artist Fellowship

Tulsa Artist Fellowship is a place-based, durational award focused on supporting independent arts practitioners.

Every year, Tulsa Artist Fellowship designates 10 new fellows from an open call process who will receive $150,000 over three award years in addition to a $12,000 yearly housing stipend, $1,200 yearly health stipend, $1,200 yearly studio assistant stipend, $1,500 relocation stipend, fully-subsidized studio spaces, and access to shared art-making facilities. Our program is integrated into a vibrant cultural district with galleries and performance venues, green space, independent retailers, and restaurants.

Tulsa Artist Fellowship recognizes that groundbreaking art practices thrive within an intention-setting framework. Awardees commit to actualizing a project during the three-year program term.

AWARD STRUCTURE

In response, Tulsa Artist Fellowship strives to remove these barriers by providing program participants with three core areas of support:

$150,000 stipend paid over three-years

$36,000 housing stipend over three-years

Fully subsidized studio space in Tulsa’s Arts and/or Greenwood Districts with access to shared facilities including a ceramics studio with kilns, woodshop, media lab, roof terrace, performance rehearsal space, and meeting rooms with video/audio capabilities

Estimated resource value of $27,000 over 3 years.

In the spirit of reflectivity, Tulsa Artist Fellowship has expanded additional award support areas to include:

  • Studio assistant stipend (over three years)
