Creative Catalyst Fellowships, in partnership with the Thomas S. Kenan Institute for the Arts, are highly competitive, paid fellowships that advance artist leadership through skill-building, mentoring, and community of practice; strengthen creative community networks to better address regional gaps; foster systemic approaches to increase access, inclusion and equity; and embrace participation and exchange across the creative sector. Creative Catalyst Fellows will also gain access to educational and community-building opportunities.

Individuals who have previously held Creative Catalyst Fellowships are not eligible to apply.
