We are excited to announce the Call for Applicants for the 3rd annual Artaxis Fellowship. This year, we will be offering two fellowships, each one worth up to $2,000, to fund a two-week summer workshop in ceramics at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. The fellowships will cover room, board, and tuition for a two-week workshop, and up to $500 for travel to and from Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Maine, USA.The Fellowship is intended to increase diversity, equity, and access across the field of the ceramic arts. Therefore, Artaxis encourages artists of diverse backgrounds and experiences to apply.

This year’s Artaxis Fellowship Selection Committee, consisting of Eva Kwong, Crystal Morey, and Neha KudchadkarΒ  will select the recipient based on artistic merit and financial need. The two recipients will be able to attend a two-week workshop of their choice at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in the summer of 2018.
