Enriching lives through art and craft

Appalachian Craft and Culture Fellowship

Arrowmont created the Appalachian Craft and Culture Fellowship in 2019 and sunset the program in early 2024 to focus on expanding their ArtReach On The Road offerings. The Fellowship provided a three-month remote residency to an Appalachian craftsperson or culture bearer.

While predominantly remote, Fellows had an open invitation to visit Arrowmont’s to learn from our supportive team, as well as access to our renowned studios. In addition to a generous stipend, Fellows were provided with an allowance for materials, travel and food. They also had the opportunity to attend Arrowmont workshops and functions as scheduling allowed.

Fellows presented at least one public lecture or craft demonstration on campus or nearby in Knoxville during their tenure.
