The two fellows will have a year-long mentorship with UH School of Art professor and Project Row Houses founder Rick Lowe along with project administrators Sixto Wagan, director of the UH Center for Art and Social Engagement, and Ryan N. Dennis, PRH's Curator and Programs Director. Local artists, faculty members, community members and selected leaders will offer their support during this process. The Fellows will present to the public their research–to-date at the end of their fellowship.
Benefits of the program include:
- a stipend of $15,000,- $5,000 project/research budget - a community Brain Trust of local artists, community members, and faculty to advise and ground the project in a local discourse, and- for non-Houston Fellows local housing at Project Row Houses with $1,000 in travel support
In return, the fellows are asked to engage our communities – Third Ward, university, artistic, and myriad other – in a process that involves:
- a public presentation of previous work and Fellowship guiding questions at the beginning of the Fellowship, - Present a public talk/project at the end of residency - Co-organizing a Community Conversation with PRH Curator and Programs Director and CASE Director - Monthly meetings with the program directors
