Arts and Literary Arts Residency Fellowship

Rockefeller Foundation

The Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Residency Program offers academics, artists, thought leaders, policymakers, and practitioners a serene setting conducive to focused, goal-oriented work, and the unparalleled opportunity to establish new connections with fellow residents from a wide array of backgrounds, disciplines, and geographies. The Foundation’s Bellagio Residency Program has a track record for supporting the generation of important new knowledge addressing some of the most complex issues facing our world, and innovative new works of art that inspire reflection and understanding of global and social issues. The Bellagio Center Arts & Literary Arts residency is for composers, fiction and non-fiction writers, playwrights, poets, video/filmmakers, and visual artists who share in The Rockefeller Foundation's mission of promoting the well-being of humanity around the world and whose work is inspired by or relates to global or social issues. The residency is for artists seeking time for disciplined work, reflection, and collegial engagement with a diverse community of academics, practitioners, and artists. The Bellagio Center has a strong interest in proposals that align with The Rockefeller Foundation's work to expand opportunities that more broadly shared prosperity and build resilience in people, places, and institutions to prepare for, withstand, and emerge stronger from acute shocks and chronic stresses. Often selected proposals demonstrate relevance to the Foundation's core issue areas of Advance Health, Revalue Ecosystems, and Secure Livelihoods, and Transform Cities. We have established outreach collaborations with four organizations: Khoj International Artists' Association in Dehli, Fundacion Jumex in Mexico City, Africa Centre in Cape Town, and United States Artists in Chicago.
