3Arts Residency Fellowships

3Arts logo





3Arts Fellows
3Arts advocates for Chicago’s women artists, artists of color, and artists with disabilities who work in the performing, teaching, and visual arts. By providing cash awards, project funding, residency fellowships, professional development, and promotion, 3Arts helps artists take risks, experiment, and build momentum in their careers.

Since 2013, 3Arts has partnered with the Alliance of Artists Communities to offer residency fellowships for past 3Arts awardees to travel to restorative and stimulating artist communities outside of Chicago to focus on their craft, connect with peers, and contribute to creative environments of exchange and collaboration. 3Arts Fellowships were established in order to support 3Arts artists beyond their award year, over time, and in tiered programming designed to help them build momentum in their careers.

Reflecting the mission of 3Arts, these fellowships specifically support Chicago-based women artists, artists of color, and artists with disabilities who work in dance, music, teaching arts, theater, and visual arts.
