The Monument Lab Fellows Program supports independent local, ongoing projects that address long term inequities in monument building and propose new creative approaches to public art and history. The Fellows Program features participants with a proven track record and vision for further growth through participatory engagement. We work with our Fellows to publish online essays on our Bulletin about their creative practice, gather for public convenings including our annual Monument Lab Town Hall, and participate in special multi-site projects. Together, we seek to organize and build networks of memory workers, interface with public art offices and institutions, and shape platforms for public discourse and critical calls to action.
Fellows work within and across fields such as art, activism, archeology, design, humanities, performance, and preservation.
