Artists are at the core of all of our work, not just as recipients of awards or fellowships, but as decision-makers and advisors. In 2018, we established an inaugural Artist Council, an esteemed group of artists representing multiple disciplines within the 3Arts network. In addition to providing feedback on our programs and policies, Council members serve on an annual jury panel for 3AP (3Arts Projects).
