Monument Lab invites applications for a 2020 cohort of Monument Lab Transnational Fellows. This fellowship recognizes individuals whose ongoing projects address long term inequities in monuments and engage new creative approaches to public art, history, and memory.
The Monument Lab Fellowship program was initially founded to support U.S.-based practitioners. This year, in partnership with the Goethe-Institut and the German Federal Agency for Civic Education, we are expanding this program through Transnational Fellowships for individuals and collectives primarily based in or across countries in North America, including Central America and the Caribbean. We encourage applications from individuals and collectives whose monument projects critically engage or collaboratively work within, along, or across national borders. This includes projects that reflect anti-racist, de-colonial, feminist, queer, and other social justice knowledge systems. In the spirit of further transatlantic exchange with our key partners, one additional fellowship will be offered to a practitioner primarily based in Germany.
Fellows will engage in activities that are meant to build capacity for their own ongoing monument and memory projects, workshop ideas, and form alliances across the cohort and multiple cities. The fellows will virtually meet several times during the fellowship, contribute to the Monument Lab Bulletin and podcast, and participate in an in-person Orientation in Washington, DC (March 2020) and a Town Hall symposium in Philadelphia (Summer 2020). Fellows will receive additional funds for documentation as a part of a publication and exhibition initiative, Shaping the Past,<https://click.mlsend.com/link/c/YT0xMjc4MzQ5NjY3MDEyMTg3Njc4JmM9ZzdwMCZlPTI5NjYzNDEmYj0yODg4NzY5NjYmZD1vOW85cjRu.I24aTtd84RFMCSYozQQB0fRf5ehAznNwhf47N7AzIIA> to foster transnational exchange among curators, artists, activists, historians, and civic participants to discuss and imagine the next generation of monuments.
The Monument Lab Fellows Program is supported by a grant from the Surdna Foundation, with additional support from the Center for Public Art and Space at the University of Pennsylvania Stuart Weitzman School of Design. Shaping the Past is a project produced in partnership with Monument Lab, the Goethe-Institut<https://click.mlsend.com/link/c/YT0xMjc4MzQ5NjY3MDEyMTg3Njc4JmM9ZzdwMCZlPTI5NjYzNDEmYj0yODg4NzY5NzQmZD14OGIzcjdx.I7NFAgj2b6G6SJOa0o5yZMGvS1JBq-23FGWt4q9da7c>, and the German Federal Agency for Civic Education<https://click.mlsend.com/link/c/YT0xMjc4MzQ5NjY3MDEyMTg3Njc4JmM9ZzdwMCZlPTI5NjYzNDEmYj0yODg4NzY5ODImZD1lOGw4eDls.ZIDiBmwkuXfd75_0aD03s8Z3aR6AO11VSfSAVTbKcBY>.


There are two general categories of Monument Lab Fellows: civic practitioners and high school students.
Applications are welcome from civic practitioners including: artists, activists, scholars, journalists, filmmakers, architects, designers, planners, archivists, historic preservationists, archeologists, data scientists, and others working across their own local contexts, interested in engaging the transnational movement to critically update and impact the monumental landscape. We welcome fellowship applications from individuals or collectives located within and across North America, including Central America and the Caribbean, and Germany. Emerging, independent, and underrepresented practitioners are especially encouraged to apply.
Applications are also welcome from high school students around the United States with existing projects that use art, activism, history, journalism, and other tools to approach monuments in their communities.
We are accepting applications in English, Spanish, French, and German.
Applicants who apply this year and who are not chosen are eligible to apply again in future years.
