The Tulsa Artist Fellowship (TAF) is a program established by the George Kaiser Family Foundation to enhance the local art scene by retaining artists and recruiting artists to Tulsa, Oklahoma.
In its second year, the Tulsa Artist Fellowship (TAF) will provide between 5 and 15 fellowships in two categories: Visual Arts and Writing. Selected artists will receive an unrestricted stipend of $20,000 and in most cases, free housing and studio work space. Given the unique cultural and historical landscape of Tulsa, some fellowship spots will be reserved for Alaska Native, Native American, and Native Hawaiian artists. Applicants must be 21 years old at the start of the fellowship.
TAF:Visual Arts fellowships focus on Public and/or Gallery Oriented Visual Arts, while TAF:Writing fellowships will focus on creative nonfiction, fiction, graphic novel, young-adult fiction, poetry, and play/screenwriting. Artists and writers at any stage are strongly encouraged to apply. Fellowships are merit-based with a one year term for TAF:Visual Arts and a two year term for TAF:Writing.
The deadline to apply is March 4, 2016 and the fellowships will begin on January 9, 2017. Click here to apply.
