BAC is proud to announce the second year of their BAC Artivism Fellowship - created to support artist activists using their tools to have an impact on the world around them. Over the course of four months, the program provides financial and production support, mentorship, networking opportunities, community and education workshops.

This year’s theme is Reimagining Justice through Abolition and will specifically support Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, and other artists of Color focused on criminal justice reform through use of narrative storytelling and artistry as we continuously strive to address and combat systemic racism.

Embedded with BAC’s Theater of Change methodology, the fellowship will enable participants to blend artistry, law, policy, and community engagement, and produce narratives with powerful impact in policy spaces where change can happen. In the process all the participants will work with community members to amplify the power of their stories informed by legal and policy research.

The Broadway Advocacy Coalition will support this cohort over the course of four months and will culminate in a digital public presentation of their work. The cohort will meet virtually on the last three Tuesdays of every month between January and March and then biweekly between April and May. The final showcase will be presented digitally on May 7th. The fellowship will begin January 2022 and last until May 2022.

Selected fellows will receive a $4,000 stipend and $2000 in project support.

Applications are open to any artist based in the United States and to all artists that center their work in stories and narrative.
