Artist and youth fellows will be in-residence at local, New York City environmental justice organizations, learning about their work, communities, and needs for creative communications and engagement. Together, equal justice groups, youth fellows, and artists will develop a creative project (i.e. film, social media campaign, installation, performance) to deepen the cultural connection(s) between climate justice and community-based solutions.

These projects will be celebrated during Climate Week NYC 2024. The Urban Environmental Health Lab (UEHL) fellowship program is designed to empower underrepresented communities in New York City by addressing urban soil, water, and air challenges. Artists will receive a stipend of 1000 USD upon completion of the program.

Fellowship Focus:

  • Environmental health awareness
  • Pollution prevention
  • Climate justice
  • Community engagement
  • Creative storytelling

The Fellowship provides artists a chance to build community and expand their network of climate experts and organizations.
