ARTIST Grants

The Lincoln City Fellowship Artist Fund was established to release an individual artist from fiscal responsibilities that prevent them from achieving their artistic goals.  These grants aid artists in creating a specific creative project that they may not have the monetary means to complete, while also enhancing their professional capacity.  

Fellows are a diverse set of emerging and established writers, filmmakers, musicians, photographers, visual artists, dancers, actors, and more – who are enriching our lives and promoting a hope-filled culture. 

In addition to grants, our one-year, non-residential Fellowship offers other resources like development assistance, promotion, meaningful connections and community. Fellows are invited to participate in east and west coast gatherings where they connect with each other and potential allies, and collectively push their work forward. Throughout the program, each Fellow will pursue a personalized plan to leverage Speranza's resources to take their work to the next level.

Recipients of the Lincoln City Fellowship have made award winning albums, published books, created new theatre works, and produced acclaimed global photography and visual art.  See completed work here.  

Application is by invitation only.  If you would like to introduce yourself, please send an email to info@speranzafoundation.com
