Tulsa Artist Fellowship (TAF), a place-based, durational award focused on supporting visionary arts practitioners, is accepting applications for its 2024–2026 cohort. The fellowship is intended for national and local artists and/or arts workers of any medium or discipline with five or more years of relevant experience. During the three-year term, awardees will live and work in Tulsa, Oklahoma. With the recognition that groundbreaking artistic practices thrive within an intention-setting framework, recipients will commit to actualizing a proposed project. Over 1,200 applicants engaged with the 2022–2023 submission process.
Located in the heart of Oklahoma’s Green Country, TAF is an initiative of the George Kaiser Family Foundation (GKFF). With GKFF’s strong belief that the arts are essential to a diverse and engaged city, Tulsa Artist Fellowship was established in 2015 as a program dedicated to addressing the most pressing challenges in artistic communities and serving as a globally recognized model for mobilizing them with the transformative power of art.
TAF annually appoints 30 arts experts working across the United States who represent a wide spectrum of disciplines to join the review process while leveraging their network of experienced creatives. Implementing this structure will deepen the fellowship’s connection to diverse communities and practices that constitute the field of art.
The 10 awardees for the 2024–2026 cycle will each receive a total of $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. The application closes on March 9, 2023.
