Call for Fellows
For SF Bay Area artists

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA) is now taking applications for the 2017-2018 Fellow cohorts. Deadline May 1st, 2017.

The YBCA Fellows program brings together creative citizens from across the Bay Area – artists and everyday people alike – to engage in a yearlong process of inquiry, dialogue, and project generation. Each Fellowship cohort will explore and respond to a question that emerged from our annual YBCA 100 summit. Together, they’ll use art and culture to inspire community transformation. Fellows projects will be presented during our Fellows Forum (Feb) or as Public Programs (Mar-Jun) and can take the form of panels, performance or visual presentations, writing, screenings, visual arts, workshops, etc. These projects provide platforms to share new ideas and information to inspire new possibilities into the public imagination.

Each cohort will grapple with one of the following questions and will require event and meeting attendance throughout the year. Scroll down for links to the application.

How do we find and empower TRUTH? & Where is our PUBLIC IMAGINATION? (Jun 2017-Jun 2018, monthly commitment)
