DIANE DAMMER FELLOWSHIP IN PHOTOGRAPHIC ARTS AND SOCIAL ISSUES. Deadline: April 1, 2018

Columbia College Chicago and Heartland Alliance, two internationally-recognized institutions with deep roots in Chicago dating back more than 120 years, partner in hosting the Diane Dammeyer Fellowship in Photographic Arts and Social Issues. The fellowship is a unique, public commitment to socially engaged art, combining Columbia’s dedication to academic excellence and developing authentic, creative voices with Heartland Alliance’s bold history of advocating for the rights of the world’s most vulnerable populations.

The purpose of this postgraduate fellowship is to create an opportunity for a socially engaged photographer to immerse themselves in the community of Heartland Alliance and to produce a new, original and compelling body of photographic work that speaks to the human rights and social issues revealed through these experiences. By engaging with the Heartland Alliance community of participants and practitioners, the fellowship allows the artist to create a true connection between subject, audience and community. This serves the larger goal of the fellowship, which is to use photographic practice to elevate our collective awareness of social, economic, and cultural issues and to inspire positive social change.

A $25,000 stipend will be awarded for the 2018-2019 academic year to support the fellow’s work. Talented individuals who have completed an MFA in photography or in another related creative field and who are committed to active immersion and participation with Heartland Alliance and Columbia College Chicago are encouraged to apply.

 

Dates: April 2018

Fees:  (USD): $25.00
