Why do you limit the ages of applicants to 22-38? We believe that this particular fellowship is best suited to artists in a certain phase of their careers, which we have identified as in this age range. Another goal of the project is to create cultural events in LA that would appeal to audiences in their 20s and 30s, and we think that artists in this peer group are more likely create this type of work. We recognize that artists of all ages need support, but we have a very specific focus for this program. This age requirement is at the moment of applying i.e. March 1, if you are turning 22 in June then you are not eligible. We are not able to make exceptions to this requirement.
I’m willing to move to LA, why do I have to have lived here previously? We are looking for artists that already have networks and connections in Los Angeles, which Six Points can help them use and leverage. We also are looking for artists who are committed to the Los Angeles cultural scene.
What if I have a visa now that will expire during the Fellowship? The Six Points Fellowship cannot provide assistance or documentation to Fellows to secure visas. If your visa will expire but you have a system in place to guarantee legal status, please submit evidence of this process. If you think you may be getting a visa, but are not sure and can’t provide official evidence, that is not secure legal status.
What if one of our collaborators is not a U. S. citizen or permanent legal resident? Non-U.S. citizens or permanent legal residents may not apply as formal collaborators; however, they may be listed as work for hire participants in a project.
What do you mean by significant engagement? We are looking for work that will resonate with young, peer audiences and expect our artists to promote their work.
What do you mean by Jewish content? We have no one way to answer this question. We are looking for a diversity of voices, projects that tackle significant issues in sophisticated ways, that are challenging and unusual, and appeal to a significant audience.
What should I submit? Please submit work that is representative of what you’re proposing, and that you feel is a strong representation of your work. You should also be sure that it is of good technical quality. We would prefer to see samples of more than one project to get a sense of your different interests and range. If your video has 3 minutes of dark footage before the curtain goes up, edit that out. If you’re submitting a multi-media project, don’t submit still images. If you’re proposing a sound installation, we need to hear some sound. This is an essential component of your application, please be thoughtful with your work sample submissions. We are only accepting on-line submissions. Please read all of the instructions carefully in the work sample areas.
