Funding is intended for activities related to the fields of film, music, and live arts. Applications are accepted from artists residing in the Detroit area counties of Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne. Funds may be spent on any aspect of an artist's creative practice or life (i.e. making new work, renting or purchasing studio space, travel, general living expenses, paying off debt, etc.).
Kresge Artist Fellowships include financial awards, professional development support, and the creation of a short, documentary-style film highlighting the artist’s work. Artists of all career stages are invited to apply. Fellowships recognize creative vision and commitment to excellence within a wide range of artistic disciplines, including artists who have been academically trained, self-taught artists, and artists whose art forms have been passed down through cultural heritage.
