This VCCA fellowship is intended to support women artists (fiction writers, screenwriters, or visual artists) emerging in mid-life and beyond, whose creative paths, like Marian Treger’s, may have been detoured or hindered by chronic health conditions or disabilities. In addition to a two-week residency at VCCA, the fellowship will include a stipend to help support the artist financially in order to be able to take this time away from her daily life and focus fully on her creative project.
Marian Treger’s lifelong friends collaborated to create this fellowship in honor of Marian’s unstoppable multifaceted creativity. You can help support this fellowship by donating via the online form below.
