Tulsa Artist Fellowship Accepting Applications


Tables are where people come together from different places, with diverse perspectives and experiences. There, they make introductions, they tell stories, they share meals, they work. The surroundings around a table can change, people come and go, but the table remains the symbol of coming together.

Tulsa Artist Fellowship brings artists and arts workers together in Tulsa, Oklahoma, distinctly positioned at the center of coastal cultural conversations. Socially invested arts practitioners live and work in Tulsa, intentionally engaging with the city.

Tulsa Artist Fellowship, located in the heart of Oklahoma’s Green Country, is an initiative of the George Kaiser Family Foundation (GKFF). Using evidence-based practices, GKFF invests in a culturally vibrant and economically robust Tulsa with the belief that a thriving community will afford high quality opportunities for all residents.

With GKFF’s strong belief that the arts are essential to a diverse and engaged city; Tulsa Artist Fellowship was established in 2015 as a program dedicated to addressing the most pressing challenges in artistic communities and serving as a globally recognized model for mobilizing communities with the transformative power of art.

Tulsa Artist Fellowship is a place-based, durational award focused on supporting independent arts practitioners. The studio facilities and housing are integrated into a vibrant cultural district with galleries and performance venues, green space, independent retailers, and restaurants. Fellowship awards are merit, not project-based, where arts professionals are gifted autonomy to explore and expand their creative practices. While the size of the residency is variant, participant capacity averages 50 contemporary artists and arts workers with a diverse range of artistic disciplines. This critical mass of artistic practitioners has proven to be one of the program’s greatest offerings. Participants are encouraged to engage in critical dialogue and skill share among their artistic colleagues through monthly gatherings and annual institutes.

Applications now open. Applicants will be notified of application status in April 2021.
