The Anishinaabe Arts Initiative (AAI) Fellowship provides unfettered funding to one individual Native American artist residing in Beltrami, Clearwater, Hubbard, Mahnomen, Lake of the Woods, Becker, Roseau, Cass, or Itasca counties in Minnesota to fuel his/her art.

The goal of the annual Region 2 Arts Council AAI Fellowship Program is to assist the region’s most talented Native American artists in furthering and innovating their work by awarding substantial financial support to fund creative time and/or arts experiences that facilitate depth and advancement in their art form. Through such support, the R2AC aims to raise the profile of artistic work in the region and create a strong community of Anishinaabe Arts Initiative Fellows. Each fellow’s artwork will be featured in R2AC’s annual AAI exhibit.

One $5,000 award will be granted in 2020.  The funds can be used for, but not limited to:

  • Exploring new directions or continuing work in progress
  • Production costs, materials, or equipment
  • Collaborative or community projects
  • Travel, research or study to further your art
