$20,000 in minimally restricted support

Comprehensive written field research reports that utilize action research methodology

In addition to direct artist support, another primary goal of ABOG is to make the “invisible” parts of socially engaged art visible. We do this through documentary films, publications, web content, and public programming. However, these content collaborations are not an obligation of the fellowship, and will be based on mutual interest under a separate contract.

Fellowship Projects may become the focus of A Blade of Grass content and programming including:

Curriculum and advocacy that advance the field of socially engaged artInclusion in their biannual magazine (available in print and free online)

Participation in documentary videos focused on curatorial themes of interest to the field

Other web content (podcasts, interviews, critical essays)

Participation in ongoing public programs
