Call for Photo Urbanism Fellowship in partnership with Staten Island Arts

Call for Photo Urbanism Fellowship

The Design Trust for Public Space is now accepting submissions for the Future Culture Photo Urbanism Fellowship, in partnership with Staten Island Arts and the Alice Austen House, to focus on the cultural community of Staten Island’s North Shore in a time of transformation.

The fellowship award includes a $10,000 stipend and a solo exhibition at the Alice Austen House. One of America’s earliest and most prolific female photographers, Alice Austen is best known as a documentary photographer—a style of photography unusual until the 20th century—with a natural instinct for photojournalism.

The Photo Urbanism Fellow’s work will inform the new Design Trust project, Future Culture, in partnership with Staten Island Arts, which will experiment with ways for developers and artists to engage in planning their community. The resulting pilots will offer compelling visions for Staten Island’s waterfront to influence long-term strategies for neighborhood revitalization, sustainability, and equitable economic development on the North Shore. The Fellow will have full artistic vision over how they interpret the topic. Partners Staten Island Arts and the Alice Austen House will provide insights on the topic and connections to the community.

The selection jury will be chaired by Paul Moakley, Deputy Director of Photography and Visual Enterprise, TIME & Caretaker and Curator, Alice Austen House, and will include Chris Boot, executive director, Aperture Foundation; Krisanne Johnson, photographer and 2013 Photo Urbanism Fellow; Erica Stoller, director, Esto; Paul Warchol, photographer; Susan Chin, FAIA, Hon. ASLA, Executive Director, Design Trust for Public Space; Janice Monger, Executive Director, Alice Austen House; and Monica Valenzuela, Deputy Director, Staten Island Arts.

How to Apply

All application materials must submitted to [email protected] by midnight on February 9, 2016. Materials that do not meet the application guidelines will not be presented to the jury.
