Creative Armenia and the Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU) are delighted to announce the launch of the Creative Armenia-AGBU Fellowships, which will discover, nourish and promote creative talents across the arts. Through a year-long program of funding, mentorship and tailored promotion strategies, Creative Armenia and AGBU will empower visionary artists to achieve a career breakthrough, both locally and globally.
Selected fellows will get $5,000 of funding for a one year term. Fellows will gain access to industry connections and tailored strategies to develop, pitch and promote their projects through one-on-one mentorship meetings and workshops. The fellowship is open to artists from all creative fields—including film, music, literature, visual arts, theater, design, and photography—who are either of Armenian origin or who have a demonstrated interest in Armenian culture. Fellows may reside anywhere in the world. To be eligible, you must have a track record of completed work in your field at a professional level. We are especially looking for artists who are working on projects of innovative quality and who are eager to take part in the creative community we are building.
