Practices for Change Fellowship is a program of the National Accelerator for Cultural Innovation, funded in part by an Our Town/Knowledge Building Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. The fellowship supports seven individuals with field experience exploring and implementing arts, culture and design-based practices focused on equitable community development in non-arts systems.
The selected national fellows work within systems such as health, justice, sustainability, housing, planning, and community development. During the year-long program, fellows will work in tandem with ASU faculty and staff as well as mentors with Center for Performance and Civic Practice (CPCP), to expand their own practical work and document practice and policy learnings from their real-life experiences.
Practices for Change is intended as a peer cohort, so that ASU, the NEA and other partners working in the field can better understand what it means to support the work that happens between artists/designers and community systems. Through the fellowship, we hope to make visible this critical interstitial work that happens in community systems and creative placemaking and to expand this field of practice. The fellows will document their work and contribute to case studies, a podcast and a national convening in 2020 where they will connect with others working in the “middle ground” between artistic practice and public policy.
