Deadline: December 1, 2021

Applications are open for the ArtsEverywhere Fay Chiang Fellowship for Artistic Journalism 2022. The Fay Chiang Fellowship is a year-long program of support for any individual artist / journalist / writer / musician / producer / collective whose work integrates creative practice with rigorous journalistic research, writing and multimedia production.

The theme of the 2022 Fay Chiang Fellowship for Artistic Journalism is: “Fault Lines & Fragile States”

Project proposals should conform to the approaches of reportage and long-form narrative storytelling exhibited in ArtsEverywhere’s Curse of Geography series. While they do not expect the work of the fellow to replicate the stories in the series, preferred submissions will emphasize collaborative engagement with independent artists, journalists, producers and/or cultural institutions. Projects highlighting critical issues in underreported parts of the world will be given preference.


  • The fellow will receive $15,000CAD as a fee and $5,000CAD for travel, equipment and other project costs. Fellows will be required to present a mid-project progress report, deliver the final project no later than December 15, 2022. We extend the opportunity for the fellow to exhibit/present their work at the 2023 ArtsEverywhere Festival (funds to attend the festival will be provided separately by ArtsEverywhere). 


  • Open to individual artist/journalist/writer/musician/producer/collective whose work integrates creative practice with rigorous journalistic research, writing and multimedia production.
  • Applicants can come from anywhere in the world.
