Kresge Artist Fellows’ Professional Practice Opportunities


Creative Many administers the professional practice opportunities for the The Kresge Artist Fellows. The fellowships provide significant financial and professional support to artists annually for emerging and established metropolitan Detroit artists in the visual arts, literary arts, live arts, music and film. The professional practice program has brought over 197 esteemed national and international arts professionals to Detroit to work with fellows and the wider creative community since 2000.

Creative Many’s professional practice program encourages the fellows to meet, present their work, brainstorm with colleagues and presenters and participate in formal and informal workshops and seminars.The program features individual meetings with Creative Many staff, a kick-off retreat, five group workshops and presenter brunches, and validation services (reviewing applications and proposals, providing letters of support and waiving application fees for our Lawyers for the
Creative Economy referral program).

The Kresge Artists Fellowships are administered by the Kresge Arts in Detroit office at the College for Creative Studies. For more information, or to apply, visit or contact their office at 313.664.1150.
