Office Manager | Tulsa Artist Fellowship (Tulsa, OK)


Established under the auspices of the Tulsa Community Foundation (TCF) by the George Kaiser Family Foundation (GKFF) in 2015, the Tulsa Artist Fellowship (TAF) enhances the local art scene by recruiting and retaining both visual and literary artists to Tulsa. Tulsa Artist Fellows inspire the community by sharing their unique artistic perspectives and inject creative culture into Tulsa's thriving art scene.

Tulsa Artist Fellowship (TAF) provides unrestricted annual stipends of $20,000, free housing, and studio workspace in the thriving Tulsa Arts District. By providing support, artists receive the financial stability and resources they need to pursue their craft. While recruitment is focused on artists residing outside of the Tulsa metropolitan area, local artists are considered for the program based on exceptional merit and promise. In addition, the program reserves fellowship positions for Native American, Alaskan Native, and Native Hawaiian artists.

The Tulsa Artist Fellowship currently has a growing full time staff of four, 41 fellows, and an annual operating budget of approximately $2.3 million.
