By Hal Partlow, Associate Director of Grants –
Individual artists still have time to apply for an Individual Artist Fellowship (IAF). The application deadline is Monday, January 29, 2018, by 11:59 p.m. CST.
The Fellowship provides $5,000 awards to outstanding professional artists (i.e. those individuals who by education, experience, or natural talent engage in a particular art form or discipline) who live and work in Tennessee. To qualify, an artist must be financially compensated for his or her work, and this compensation must be a significant source of support for their livelihood. No matching funds are required, and no specific project has to be carried out with the funds.
