Fellowships to Illinois, Iowa, North and South Dakota, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin individuals in rural areas. The fellowship includes financial support as well as learning, exchange, and problem-solving to address issues affecting rural communities. Eligible applicants are those in communities with under 50,000 residents.
With the inaugural cohort starting in 2021, the Rural Regenerators Fellowship will bring rural artists and creatives together with rural organizers and other cross-sector leaders for learning, exchange, and problem solving around issues facing rural communities. For the next three years, each cohort will focus on a specific rural issue that serves as a nexus for Fellows to build collective knowledge, understanding and problem solving around. The 2021 Cohort will have a focus on equitable post-pandemic relief and recovery.
Fellows will be selected based on their demonstrated commitment to rural arts-based community development, their interest in sharing their own experiences and learning around this work with other fellows, and their desire to grow, adapt, or launch new work that will strengthen their community.
