Arts Writers Fellowship



The National Center for the Preservation of Democracy at the Japanese American National Museum is thrilled to announce the Irene Yamamoto Arts Writers Fellowship (IYAWF). This year’s inaugural fellowship provides two $5,000 unrestricted awards to promising writers of color who are focused on art criticism and/or reporting.

The IYAWF will be awarded to two (2) emerging writers of color, each of whom receive a $5,000 award to be spent over a six-month period.

Two promising writers who have demonstrated commitment to writing about the art of communities of color and whose unique perspectives or points of view contribute to arts writing.

The IYAWF is made possible through a gift from Sharon Mizota to honor the late Irene Yamamoto. This project is also supported by Critical Minded, an initiative to invest in cultural critics of color cofounded by The Nathan Cummings Foundation and the Ford Foundation
