18th Street Arts Center Names 18 Fellows to Drive Statewide California Creative Corps Project

The corps of fellows will receive a year-long $65K salary plus benefits and a production budget up to $50,000 and execute year-long creative interventions across the state from Yreka near the Oregon border to City Heights in San Diego. Projects are designed to reduce the barriers to health and well-being in communities that demonstrate the highest level of need. Creative practices include filmmaking, poetry, graphic novels, photography, dance, and traditional art. Place-based art-making projects will engage diverse communities, including Native peoples, migrants, LGBTQIA+, POC and long-time residents. The projects explore a broad range of systemic challenges including pollution, gentrification, healthcare, wellbeing, cultural identity and community/belonging.
