Mass Cultural Council Adopts a New Strategic Plan
Charting our path forward for FY24-26
Mass Cultural Council is honored to announce the 2019 Artist Fellowship awards in Crafts, Dramatic Writing, and Sculpture/Installation/New Genres. Sixteen artists will receive fellowships of $15,000, and 15 artists plus one collaborative duo will receive $1,000 finalist awards.
The awards are anonymously judged, based solely on the artistic quality and creative ability of the work submitted. Applications were open to all eligible Massachusetts artists. A total number of 457 applications were received; 96 in Crafts, 129 in Dramatic Writing, and 232 in Sculpture/Installation/New Genres.
This is the first series of Artist Fellowships awards to be given by Mass Cultural Council in 2019. In late May 2019, we will announce awards in Film & Video, Music Composition, and Photography.
