The Frontier Fellowship provides creative professionals the opportunity to live and work with Epicenter in Green River, Utah (pop. 952), for two to eight weeks. From this rural place and in the context of the frontier, Fellows generate new work that is informed by the residents of Green River and the surrounding desert landscape. Epicenter, a design studio instigating positive change through community-based projects and programs, facilitates Fellowships throughout the year. Epicenter encourages applications regardless of applicant’s background, focus, or specialty.
The Fellowship is open to artists, chefs, designers, explorers, folklorists, geologists, musicians, and more. Epicenter is a non-profit organization operated by eight young professionals located in a historic building in downtown Green River. It houses an office space, a basement workroom, and a workshop stocked with tools. While in residence, Fellows spend half of their time working on personal projects and half of their time on a community-based project that aligns with the Fellow’s practice. Fellows are given access to Epicenter’s vast network of partners, an extensive array of tools (if applicable), and workspace within the office and workshops. Off-site housing is provided and requires a $250 fee. Travel, living, and materials stipends are available on a limited basis and details are provided after acceptance.
Humanities Fund for Baltimore
Both the peaceful protests and the violence in Baltimore that followed the death of Freddie Gray in police custody this past April responded to decades of structural racism and inequity in housing, education, and economic opportunities in predominantly African American communities.
The Maryland Humanities Council (MHC) believes that the equity that needs to be created here in Baltimore, and across much of the nation, can begin with the humanities. Only the humanities—especially history, the law, ethics, and philosophy—can give us the contexts for understanding and addressing these problems. And only the humanities can facilitate the conversations that will ultimately contribute to solutions. These conversations are—at their foundation—about fostering democracy at a difficult and painful time in our city and of polarization, fear, and animosity here and in the nation.
