Areas of Interest:
National Arts Strategies (NAS) believes that arts and culture are vital to community life, and that no matter how society changes the individual desire to participate in creative experiences will stay as strong as it has throughout human history.

NAS's Creative Community Fellows program is intended for artists, activists, community organizers, administrators, and entrepreneurs working as change-makers in their communities – using arts and culture as vehicles to drive physical and social transformations.

Fellows will explore tools and frameworks from faculty at the University of Pennsylvania, NAS, mentors, practitioners, and peers in areas such as human-centered design and leadership.

Characteristics of potential applicants:

  • unique individuals with an idea to use arts and culture to better a community;
  • curious, open, and collaborative;
  • aware of the community problem they want to solve employing arts and culture as an agent in the solution;
  • from an urban, suburban, or rural community; and,
  • not necessarily associated with an organization.
Each year 24 Fellows are selected. All tuition, including the cost of lodging, food, local transportation, and program fees ($8,000) is completely underwritten. Fellows are responsible for their transportation to and from the two in-person events.

Application Procedures:
Application guidelines are available on the NAS website.
