Social Justice Fellowships
In honor of AWBW’s 30th Anniversary, we are deepening our commitment to community activism and promoting BIPOC voices through the creation of Social Justice Fellowships; full training scholarships supporting individuals who forward the establishment of equity, diversity, and inclusion throughout our society. These fellowships are rooted in AWBW’s history of supporting innovative and community-based solutions through the individual action of our facilitators.
Candidates for a Social Justice Fellowship will demonstrate their commitment to using art as a tool for collective activism, and will engage with other Fellows throughout the year to support and learn from their peers — co-creating collective resources that work to uproot, transform, and eradicate systems that foster inequity, disparity, and injustice in all forms.
By receiving this full training scholarship ($1500 value), Fellows commit to:
- Provide a goal statement for how they intend to use art as a tool for promoting individual activism for collective change
- Submit a monthly highlight story forwarding their leadership as a facilitator and exemplifying the impact of their arts practice
- Attending quarterly “Resource Exchange” with your Fellowship cohort
- Provide a photo and short bio for AWBW’s website
