In January 2020, ArtsEverywhere launched the inaugural Fay Chiang Fellowship for Artistic Journalism as a year-long program of support for an individual (artist, journalist, writer, musician, producer, or collective) whose work exhibits a commitment to integrating creative practice with rigorous journalistic research, writing and multimedia production.
The Fellowship is dedicated to the memory of poet, visual artist and community organizer Fay Chiang who was a cornerstone of the arts community in New York City for four decades and a catalyst for the Asian American cultural movement. After a decades-long battle with cancer, Fay left behind a legacy and tradition of community-based artistic and cultural production that we honour.
The Fay Chiang Fellowship for Artistic Journalism aims to support creative, rigorous reportage and long-form narrative storytelling in underreported regions of the world. Fellows are selected on the basis of the overall merit of their proposal and the potential of the project to spark positive social change in focus communities. Accepted fellows receive an annual stipend and the support of professional artists, journalists, producers, and the ArtsEverywhere editorial team.

This series on queer language gathers personal stories, linguistic histories, creative writing, and cultural narratives that gesture toward the realization of an internationalist solidarity infused with the struggles, histories, desires, and exuberances of queer life and language everywhere.
