The Diane Dammeyer Fellowship in Photographic Arts and Social Issues is a collaboration between the Photography Department at Columbia College Chicago and Heartland Alliance,a global anti-poverty organization. The purpose of this postgraduate fellowship is to create an opportunity for a socially engaged photographer to immerse himself/herself in the community of participants served by Heartland Alliance programs and to produce a new body of photographic work that speaks to the human rights and social issues revealed through these experiences. In addition to his/her work with the Heartland Alliance community in the greater Chicago area,the fellow will also spend significant time at Columbia College Chicago,where he/she will be mentored by a Department of Photography faculty member and will work with Columbia students. A $25,000 stipend will be awarded for the 2016-2017 academic year to support the fellow’s work.
