Chicago’s 3Arts offers four local fellowships for Deaf and disabled artists in partnership with Bodies of Work. These customized residencies are centered on professional development, the creation of new work, and advocating for disability arts, culture, and aesthetics on and off campus.

Learn about our current and past fellows by visiting the 3Arts website.

The article Disability Culture Leadership Initiative: A Chicago Model by Carrie Sandahl and Esther Grimm serves as a detailed report on the 3Arts Residency Fellowships at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC)
