Creative Workforce Fellowship

Update on Creative Workforce Fellowship Program

No deadline in 2014

As we’ve posted here previously, the Community Partnership for Arts and Culture (CPAC) commenced an evaluation of the Creative Workforce Fellowship program in mid-2013. CPAC subsequently shared the evaluation with Cuyahoga Arts & Culture (CAC), the organization that funds the Creative Workforce Fellowship program.

Informed by that evaluation, Cuyahoga Arts & Culture is reviewing the role of individual artist funding as it relates to its mission. CAC’s board will discuss this topic at its September board meeting.

There will be no Creative Workforce Fellowship application deadline until Cuyahoga Arts & Culture has completed its review. More information will be shared as it becomes available. If you have questions please contact Meg Matko directly, (216) 575-0331, x123.

About the program

Every day, artists are investing in the future of Cuyahoga County. They push boundaries, provoke thought and make valued contributions to our vibrant community. CPAC's Creative Workforce Fellowship invests directly in the future of these artists. Made possible through a grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture, the Fellowship is designed to strengthen the voices of 20 outstanding artists each year. 

For its one-year duration, every Fellowship offers a $20,000 financial award that can be used for any purpose that advances the Fellow's artistic work and professional development.


In addition, two artists receive Seth Rosenberg Prizes, which includes a $2,500 grant for supplies and equipment. These artists would step into a Fellowship if one of the recommended Fellows were unable to accept the award.

Made possible through the generous support of Cuyahoga County residents through

Cuyahoga Arts & Culture
