About the Creative Catalyst Fellowships

Creative Catalyst Fellowships at the Thomas S.

Fellowships are designed to develop and empower artist leaders, entrepreneurs and innovators to lead, create and make, while engaging the arts and creative sector across North Carolina and the Southeast. This new program expands the Kenan Institute's fellowship strategy to increase impact, reach and leverage, while providing practical experience for a diverse group of Southeast-based artists.

Creative Catalyst Fellowships will 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. 

These highly competitive, paid fellowships will support the next generation of artist leaders. Creative Catalyst Fellows will gain access to year-long educational and community building opportunities, including an online certificate program, mentoring and networking, as well as participation in the annual Artivate Summit in Winston-Salem, NC.

All registration and travel expenses for the Certificate and Artivate are covered in the fellowship and are at no additional cost to the Fellow.
