The Arts and Social Practice Fellowship is a reciprocal exchange program with our US partners offering fellowship grants to socially-engaged artists in the US and UK. Fellows are offered residencies of 2-3 weeks with host organizations in the US and the UK. Each residency is self-determined by the artist whose practice involves public interaction and addresses contemporary social issues through the lens of arts and culture. 

The program began in partnership with the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs in 2012-2014, and in 2015 was extended to Portland State University's Arts & Social Practice MFA program.
