The Kala Fellowship, an international competition, annually grants nine artists a cash award, unlimited access to Kala’s facilities for up to six months, and a culminating show in the Kala Gallery, through a highly competitive jurying process. The Fellowship Award is geared towards supporting artists in completing specific projects or bodies of work that would benefit from Kala's specialized equipment. This year Kala reserved one of the nine awards for an artist working in the discipline of Social Practice. Another of the nine awards is designated for a California artist living outside of a main metropolitan area with funding provided by The James Irvine Foundation. Hosting nine new artists at Kala each year helps to ensure that the artistic energy and vision of Kala’s entire community of artists in residence is continually re-energized and rejuvenated.
The application deadline for the 2013 Fellowship award is Friday, May 24, 2013.
The 2013 Fellowship competition will be juried by Kala's Directors and an anonymous panel that includes one fellowship alumni artist, and one invited Bay Area arts professional. The online application will be posted by March 2013. Please check back here for more infromation: http://www.kala.org/fellow/fellowship.html
