New Grant Opportunity for Black Artists Exploring Environmental Justice Themes in NC.

Black artists across the state of North Carolina are invited to apply for new environmental justice fellowship.

Artists are an integral part of the work, creating art, cultural artifacts and activations that inspire, educate and challenge. But they are often inadequately compensated or acknowledged for their labor and expertise. Artists Derrick Beasley and Monèt Noelle Marshall aim to uplift artists as key change makers with their new funding opportunity, Grounded Possibilities Fellowship. A year-long program, Grounded Possibilities Fellowship will select 12 fellows, 3 from each of the 4 regions of the state. The fellows will receive $3,000 in unrestricted funds, gather for an in-person retreat and have their work shared with the wider community at a public event in Spring 2025.
