Supporting professional and emerging artists of African descent
Get to know the selected artists who participate in our Mentorship Residency Program and David C. Driskell Fellowship. Joining us from all over the world, these artists demonstrate a sustained commitment to their practice, take creative risks, and execute clear concepts and creative methodologies that advance artistic expression.
This Mentorship Residency program is at the core of Indigo Arts Alliance. By bringing together artists from diverse backgrounds of the African Diaspora to engage in their creative process, we enable the creative work of visual artists across disciplines. Artists of all disciplines are encouraged to participate and apply!
The David C. Driskell Fellowship is a 3 month residency at Black Seed Studio for Maine Based or Maine Rooted artists of color. Created to honor the life and legacy of artist, historian, and Indigo Arts Alliance’s Elder Advisor, David C. Driskell, the purpose of this fellowship is to grant time and space to artists of color who need focus in order to deeply explore their creative production.
