The University of Houston Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts (KGMCA) and Project Row Houses (PRH) have developed a fellowship program supported by Suzanne Deal Booth that builds on leadership, community-engaged art, and social practice projects. The program brings artists, cultural practitioners, urban planners, educators, and policymakers to engage with the PRH process, a community of scholars in the McGovern College, and the greater Houston community. For one year, two fellows are selected to become active cultural practitioners and focus their research on community-engaged creative practices.
This year’s program seeks two new fellows — one local to Houston and one non-local individual — whose practice would benefit from a year-long research-intensive and mentorship. During the fellowship year, they will engage our communities through public presentation of prior work and a co-developed community event. At the end of their tenure, they will present their research-to-date.
In addition to mentorship from PRH and KGMCA, the two fellows will each receive a stipend of $15,000, a $5,000 project/research grant, and access to a community brain trust.
