Up to 6 fellowships of $5,000 will be awarded to support archival research on underrepresented and non-dominant craft histories in the United States.
The 2024 Craft Archive Fellowship will foster archival research on underrepresented and non-dominant craft histories in the United States, such as feminist, intersectional, queer, Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian American and Pacific Islander, and other communities and approaches that may not be specifically listed here. The fellowship will support a range of scholars, including independent, artists, and emerging to established researchers. Up to 6 Center for Craft Archive Fellows will receive a $5,000 stipend to conduct research in an archive of their choosing. These Fellows may engage in both conventional and innovative approaches to archival research. Fellows will participate in a virtual program presented by Center for Craft in February 2025, to include a 5 to 7 minute verbal presentation of their research method and findings and participate in group discussion. In addition, the Fellows have the opportunity to publish their research in an article on Hyperallergic which will be featured in a special edition of Hyperallergic’s newsletter in Winter 2025, making it accessible to a national and international audience.
The Center for Craft Archive Fellowship issupported in part by Ayumi Horie and Sara Clugage.
