Paul Sacaridiz, executive director of the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts will visit Columbia College Chicago to give a presentation on the Haystack Fellowship, a fully-funded fellowship for Columbia students of color to attend Session 2 workshops in the stunning landscape of Deer Isle, Maine. Founded in 1950 and considered to be the “bedrock of the craft movement,” the school offers workshops and residencies for artists and makers of all levels. The fellowship is in partnership with Academic Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI).

Previous Columbia recipients, such as student Julia Arredondo and alum Charles Long '18, have described the program as transformative to their practice.

Sacaridiz will discuss the fellowship and answer questions about applications, due March 4. The application will be distributed through department chairs, professors, and through Melissa Potter, who you can contact directly: mpotter@colum.edu
