The Jericho Fellowship is a four-day gathering in August in Venice, Italy around an annual theme that brings together visionary artists, scholars, and thinkers to share time, space, and ideas. Attendees include guests, speakers, and prize winners and are invited privately and individually. Days will be filled with lectures, panels, plays, musical performances, and delicious food. The Jericho Fellowship invites guests to be intellectually stimulated by a passionate group of people and come away with new ways of seeing and engaging with the world. To be inspired by special surroundings and a multi-disciplinary approach.

The 2019 Central Theme is Epiphany. The prizes are an exciting opportunity for young emerging artists or established practitioners to show case their work which can be in the form of a single submission or series of pieces. The Jericho Fellowship offers four places at the fellowship to individuals who excel in the following categories: Essay Writing, Playwriting, Visual Art, and Innovation. Winners for prizes will receive a cash prize and be invited to attend the symposium where they will be presented with their prize.

The Advisory Board includes: Rupi Kaur, Riz Ahmed, Martin Taylor, Marai Larasi, Shiva Balaghi, Greta Gerwig, Alan Rusbridger, and Dr. Rebecca Hammersley.

Application deadline for all submissions is July 30th, 2019.
