The Story Maps Application is now closed, 2019. Fellows will be announced February 1, 2019. Applications for the 2020 Fellowship will open in November, 2019.
Story Maps is a fellowship program that mentors local, emerging artists/creative practitioners of color in collaborative community engagement. Working with government and non-arts organizations, Story Maps Fellows are immersed in a focused curriculum over the course of 9 months. Fellows gather stories, create maps and visualize data, develop artworks and a collaborative community project.
