SFAI is proud to support visual artists & writers with spinal cord injuries (SCI) through a new Creative Access Fellowship in partnership with Alliance of Artist Communities, the Vermont Studio Center, PLAYA, and Ragdale Foundation. Creative Access offers artists with SCI the rare opportunity for concentrated time dedicated to their creative practice in a supportive residency community. Twelve awardees will receive the invaluable opportunity of a 2-8 week residency at one of the four host sites, including room and board, a stipend, and travel award for a personal assistant/caregiver if needed.
At SFAI, we are artists, innovative thinkers and engaged citizens. We cultivate creative leadership and invest in community, culture, and place to re-imagine a more equitable world.
SFAI implements yearlong thematic programing that addresses pertinent questions facing diverse regional and global communities. By hosting residencies for creative practitioners, fostering partnerships with regional cultural and educational organizations, and integrating social entrepreneurial and education initiatives, SFAI aspires to transform Santa Fe into a hub for positive social change that reflects the greatest needs of our times.
