Scholarships for BIPOC Artists
New in 2021, Snow Farm is pleased to strengthen our commitment to accessibility, equity, and inclusion with four scholarships designated specifically for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) artists. We believe strongly in the value of diverse of voices, backgrounds, and experiences to enrich and sustain the Snow Farm creative community, and we recognize that BIPOC artists, who have been most impacted by racism and colonialism, are critical to the creative future. These scholarships are one step along the path toward more equity and justice.
- Three scholarships are for a 9-day ceramic workshop taught by Melissa Weiss, Reduction-Cooled, Hand Built Pots, August 5 - 13, 2021. NOTE: The workshop is listed as FULL, but spots are reserved for scholarship recipients.
- One scholarship is available for Enameling for Dimensional Forms, taught by Tanya Crane, May 14 - 16, 2021.
These scholarships are supported by ongoing fundraising efforts by Snow Farm. The ceramic scholarships are offered in partnership with Melissa Weiss, with additional support of the Asparagus Valley Pottery Trail.
If you would like to contribute to these and future scholarships for BIPOC artists, donate here or contact Mary Jo Murphy at 413-268-3101.
All BIPOC-identifying artists are invited to apply by April 1, 2021.
Scholarship awards include full tuition, housing, and meals. An additional $150 travel stipend is available if needed.
Applications will be evaluated on the quality of artistic work, impact of the opportunity, and demonstrated commitment to the field.
