ELIGIBILITY: Through the financial generosity of the Jerome Foundation of St. Paul, residency-fellowships for the Jerome Emerging Artists Residency at the Anderson Center are awarded to emerging artists in all disciplines who live in Minnesota and the five boroughs of New York City. As of 2017, the Jerome Foundation has issued a new set of eligibility criteria toward defining emerging or early phase artist. All applicants to the Jerome Emerging Artists Residency must meet the following criteria:
  • Artists who create new, original work; artists, collectives, or ensembles (e.g., writers, choreographers, visual artists, film/video/digital production directors, new media artists, theater directors who generate new works, performance artists, playwrights, spoken-word artists, composers and sound artists) whose primary goal is to generate new works, as opposed to remounting or re-interpreting existing works.
  • Artists whose work is presented to the public.
  • Artists who are the primary generators, not interpreters, of work; artists who interpret, perform, edit, or design the work of others (e.g., singers, dancers, actors, musicians, editors, journalists, designers in sets/lights/costumes/sound, editors, arrangers, managers, administrators, builders, technicians) but who do not also have a significant history of generating new work are not eligible per the guidelines.
  • Artists whose work is aesthetically or socially innovative.
  • Artists who are in the emerging or early phase of their career or creative development; artists, collectives or ensembles who have a focused direction and goals, even while still developing their artistic “voice” and who have yet to be substantially celebrated within their field, the media, funding circles or the public at large.
  • Artists who are not students; artists who are or will be at the time of application and during the grant period may not be enrolled in degree-granting programs (including K-12, college, graduate or postgraduate studies).
  • Artists who do not create work as a hobby or pastime.
  • Artists who are legal residents of Minnesota or one of the five boroughs of New York City.
