IDA Fellowship



The Institute for Diversity in the Arts is bringing together a team of imaginative fellows who are passionate about the role of cultural workers at the intersection of community-based arts practice and social justice. We are a creative community committed to art, disruption, transformation, and justice. Together we work to advance and support creativity, cultural equity, and healing for marginalized communities. We actively center narratives of the colonized and other marginalized voices in and through our work. We do this because we are working to create the world we want to experience.

The IDA Fellowship is a year-long paid program for undergraduate students from diverse backgrounds, creative disciplines and majors. This fellowship program provides support from a close-knit creative community, time for generative arts' practice; alongside professional development and deepening of social justice principles. An incredible fellowship for artists and activists, this group works together to advance and support creativity, equity, and healing for all communities.

**Applications for the 2020-2021 school year NOW OPEN and are due on September 22nd at 5pm! **


Those who are not chosen to be Fellows are deeply welcome to join the IDA community through our cohorts, classes, events, and other programming. This opportunity is for those wanting a more intensive commitment to IDA, to work within the space and lead a committee in programming, event planning.

Students will meet once a month with IDA staff and special guests, alongside time for creative practice, this fellowship is about 8 hours per week. This is a paid opportunity. The program will culminate with celebration and a showcase of new work.
