Performing Arts Fellowships Open Soon

We’re pleased to announce the debut of our Performing Arts Fellowships. The purpose of the Performing Arts Fellowship is to acknowledge and encourage the careers of established, professional Utah individual artists demonstrating exceptional creativity in, and dedication to, the performing arts. The Performing Arts Fellowship Program seeks to support committed Utah artists reaching pivotal moments in their artistic careers. Applicants are expected to demonstrate why now is the appropriate time in their career for this one-time award.

Two $10,000 fellowships will be awarded to performing artists annually. Performing arts disciplines will rotate each year between dance, music, and theatre. This inaugural year will focus on music applicants.

Individual artists must demonstrate professionalism in their practice through quality work samples and documentation. Artists must be Utah residents not enrolled in a degree- or certificate-granting program.

Applications open January 15 and will close February 12. Please read the guidelines thoroughly. If you have questions, contact Jason Bowcutt at jbowcutt@utah.gov or 801.236.7554. Here’s more information.
