The Frontier Fellowship provides creative practitioners the opportunity to live and work with Epicenter in Green River, Utah. Fellows generate new work that is informed by the region’s history, the surrounding desert landscapes, and the local residents. While in residence, Fellows execute community-based projects that align with Epicenter’s mission and long term goals.
Epicenter is honored to receive dozens of applicants from around the world, but only a select few are accepted to participate annually. Fellows are selected based on the quality of recent work and must possess a proven sensitivity to and enthusiasm for working in small communities, a strong history of collaboration, and a demonstrated ability to develop and creatively leverage resources. This year, we invited a past Fellow, a local community member, a local artist, and our new Enterprise Rose Fellow to join the selection committee process. We are honored to present Epicenter’s next round of Frontier Fellows, an exciting group of folklorists, designers, musicians, artists, and other creative practitioners who will be focused on teaching self-documentation skills and strategies, sharing tools for self expression and cultural exploration, and engaging the community in co-designing new affordable housing for Green River.
