This is a two-year residency for a disabled writer. The award includes a $40,000 fellowship stipend paid in monthly increments for two years, plus production funds. The Fellowship is open to candidates throughout the United States. "While The Apothetae and The Lark are based in New York, we are eager to ensure that this program is national in scope. Much of the fellowship activities can occur wherever the selected Fellow resides, and when program activities require the Fellow’s attendance in New York, travel and housing costs will be provided." Deadline: 6/15/17.

The Kennedy Center Office of VSA and Accessibility is excited to announce the call for art for Electrify!, a competition and exhibition.
Electrify! features artwork by artists with disabilities, ages 16-25, who are living in the U.S. We are seeking artwork that is charged with ideas, that acts as a conduit for creative reflection on the past, explores the "now," and invokes a future full of possibility and inclusivity. Art should excite our senses, awaken our curiosity, and electrify our very being. It has the ability to invigorate and empower the artist and viewer alike, but just as important, art can spark empathy and ignite understanding. Deadline: 5/3/17.
