International Fellowship Opportunity

December 27th deadline for exciting Fellowship in Performance

The Laboratory for Global Performance and Politics (out of Georgetown University in Washington DC)  invites invites applications for the 2020-2021 cohort of its Fellows Program, funded by the The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The Lab’s mission is to humanize global politics through the power of performance. To this end, applications are welcomed from performing artists who also define themselves as community-based and/or globally-minded activists, educators, or policymakers working at the intersection of performance and politics/social justice.


The Fellows Program is an 18-month, transnational residency that connects Fellows to a community of peers, fosters collaboration, and inspires intersectional and international dialogue. Through the Fellows Program, The Lab nurtures novel artistic approaches and ways of thinking about how the arts engage critical social issues.

Lab Fellows learn from each other, and grow both as individuals and as a  group through the course of the Fellowship; new works and collaborations may develop along the way. Ultimately, the Fellowship contributes to the foundation of artists working at the intersection of politics and performance around the world.

Applications are now open and must be submitted no later than December 27, 2019.
