CCI Fellowships

The Caribbean Cultural Institute (CCI) Fellowship program fosters art projects and research that advance cultural development and scholarship in the Caribbean and its diaspora. Through research and production-based art fellowships, the program cultivates new ideas that challenge traditional conceptions of Caribbean art, generates innovative study of the region, and reflects upon the contemporary state of Caribbean art and thought. The CCI Fellowship program is intended to support artists, cultural practitioners, and scholars from the Caribbean and its diaspora whose projects would benefit from access to Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) and its institutional resources.

The CCI invites interested artists and researchers to submit their applications for the 2024 CCI Artist and Research Fellowships. Both programs are self-directed and will take place between September and December 2024. The specific dates of each fellowship will depend upon the specific requirements of the project and be mutually decided upon by the awardee and CCI team.

Fellowship Guidelines

2024 CCI Artist Fellowship

The CCI Artist Fellowship is intended for emerging to mid-career Caribbean artists and cultural practitioners based in the Caribbean or its diaspora and working across a range of disciplines and media. This opportunity is designed to support the development of artistic practice via studio work, mentorship, institutional collaborations, and/or engagement in public programs. The CCI will provide institutional support as well as access to PAMM’s curatorial resources and networks. The Artist Fellow will be hosted in Miami for up to two months and provided with accommodation, a stipend, and a studio space in collaboration with the Bakehouse Art Complex. Travel expenses to and from Miami will be covered. A production budget of up to $4,000 will be allocated depending upon the needs of the project.

2024 CCI Research Fellowship

The CCI Research Fellowship is intended for Caribbean researchers, scholars, or curators—at any stage in their careers—who are based in the Caribbean or its diaspora and whose research advances the study of contemporary art of the region. The CCI encourages proposals that expand the scholarship on artworks from PAMM’s Caribbean art collection, but also welcomes research projects that shed light on different aspects of Caribbean art and cultural production from an interdisciplinary perspective.

This fellowship will follow a hybrid (remote and in-person) format and must be completed within four months. As part of the program, the CCI will cover travel expenses and accommodation in Miami for a two-week residency period devoted to collection viewing, networking, and active engagement with the local art community. The CCI will also provide a research stipend and cover research-related expenses up to $2,000. The fellow is expected to produce an essay that will be published on the CCI website.
