pro network fellowship v2

Artist Fellowship Program

2022 deadline: TBD

In 2016, Erie Arts & Culture committed to making a greater investment in the artists living and working in Erie County by establishing the annual Artist Fellowship program. The agency saw a need to provide artists with unrestricted funding that could be used to pursue artistic development and growth.   

Originally, Erie Arts & Culture awarded three fellowships annually – two to emerging artists and one to an established artist. In 2020, the agency’s Grantmaking Committee reviewed the program’s eligibility requirement through the lens of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Upon further reflection, the Erie Arts & Culture Board of Trustees and Grantmaking Committee decided that it was necessary to revise program criteria and guidelines. Starting in 2020, the fellowship program includes three artist categories: Emerging, Mid-Career, and Established.

Northwestern PA Arts Recovery Fund

Deadline: See the link below

As part of the Northwest Pennsylvania Arts Recovery Grant Program, Erie Arts & Culture offers a new funding opportunity to artists living and working in Erie, Warren, Crawford, Venango, Mercer, and Lawrence Counties. This program is made possible through a subgranting award that EAC received from the National Endowment for the Arts’ American Rescue Plan. The grants are intended to fuel the nation’s recovery from the devastating economic and health effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. These funds are intended to help support artists and the broader arts and culture sector in its response to and recovery from the pandemic.

EAC’s awards will impact a broad constituency, and we encourage applications from artists of all disciplines. Through this project, EAC provides support to regional artists as they mitigate the impact of the pandemic while also encouraging the expansion of community access to the arts by (a) demystifying artistic practice and increasing the accessibility of arts programs to communities—especially communities that may have been underserved in the past by federal arts funding; and (b) supporting a wide range of arts activities developed in a variety of local settings.

EAC's Northwestern PA Arts Recovery Grant Program will provide artistic fees and stipends to artists for the production of artistic workshops or presentations that are free and accessible to community stakeholders.
