Open call for 2022 fellows at Project Row Houses and University of Houston Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts

Application deadline: July 20, 2022, 11:59pm

A fellowship program that emphasizes leadership, community engaged art, and social practice projects has been developed by Project Row Houses (PRH) and the University of Houston Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts with funding from a donation from Suzanne Deal Booth. In order to connect with the PRH process, a community of researchers in the McGovern College, and the larger Houston community, the fellowship program invites artists, cultural practitioners, urban planners, educators, and policymakers. Looking for two new fellows, one from Houston and one from out of town, whose practice would benefit from a year of mentorship that focuses heavily on research. The fellows’ focus will be on community-engaged creative practices and research throughout the fellowship year, with the chance for a public introduction of earlier work, a jointly planned community event, and a presentation of their research thus far at the conclusion of the fellowship. The two fellows will each receive a 15,000 USD salary, a research grant, and access to a community brain trust in addition to mentoring from PRH and KGMCA.

A community platform called Project Row Houses focuses on cultural identity and how it affects the urban environment while enhancing lives through the arts. In order to help underprivileged communities create sustainable opportunities, we involve our neighbors, artists, and businesses in communal creative action.

One of Houston’s oldest African-American communities, the Historic Third Ward, is where Project Row Houses has a large presence. The location spans five city blocks and includes 39 buildings that work as the hub for a number of neighborhood improvement projects, art initiatives, and community-enriching initiatives.

Apply now. Deadline: July 20, 2022 at 11:59pm CST.
