Won Lee Fellowship 2021

Hosted by Tangled Art + Disability

Applications for the Won Lee Fellowship are now open. The Won Lee Fellowship is a $1,500 cash award designed to support a hard-working artist who identifies as Deaf, Mad, or Disabled and lives in Canada. It’s generously provided by Won Lee, and distributed by us, the Tangled Art + Disability team.

Artists are welcome and encouraged to apply regardless of what art practice experience they have. Whether you’ve exhibited or not, whether you’ve been paid for your art before, are formally trained or self-taught, identity as a ‘professional artist’ or not, we are excited to consider your application. 


Applications are accepted in English, French, ASL or LSQ. We welcome applications in whatever formats are most accessible to you, including video or audio submissions. If you’ve thought of a format that we don’t list here, let us know.   If you need any accommodations to support your application to the Fellowship that aren’t noted on our website, please contact victoria@tangledarts.org.
