Fellowship for Social Media Artists
Thanks to a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Virginia Center for Creative Arts (VCCA) is offering two fully funded, six-week fellowships for artists who are using social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube. The fellowships are for artists who are exploring ways to seamlessly integrate the social media platform into the work itself, thus finding new and compelling ways to use social media as a tool of self-expression. The fellowships are accompanied by a $2,000 stipend.
Craig Pleasants, VCCA Program Director says, "the artists selected for these fellowships will be working in ways that move art from the gallery or museum to the web, seeking ways to free art from geographical and temporal constraints. We are not defining social media artwork for this fellowship, leaving that to the artists who are pioneering this field, but the finished work must be presented on the web and be fully accessible to the netverse. We expect that the successful work will be tied to the logic of social media as well as being conceptually rich."
This opportunity is for artists who have not previously been in residence at VCCA. Residencies must take place between October 1, 2012 and May 31, 2013.
Interested? You can apply here. The deadline for applying is June 15, 2012. Applicants for this fellowship should include the words Social Media Fellowship prominently on their application.
