The Schoolhouse has been privileged to host an outstanding international roster of accomplished fellows for residencies since beginning the program in 2010.
The Schoolhouse awards fellowships to outstanding individuals who are established artists, scholars, or professionals. The fellowships provide 30-day residencies with lodging and meals for the fellow and a life partner here at the Great Wall. The purpose is to provide a low-key environment for fellows to create and think.
Each fellow is expected to work on a project of some sort (e.g. creating works of art or participating in a seminar on an agreed topic). Fellows are asked to offer a public lecture or exhibition on an agreed topic/theme. We hope and expect that the fellows will broadly contribute to social, economic, or ecological sustainability.
We do not have an application form or a formal evaluation process. We welcome proposals for fellowships. The number of fellowships awarded varies from year to year and we reserve the sole right to accept or decline proposals as well as to change or modify the fellowships at will.
Please contact us if you are interested in a fellowship or would like to suggest a worthy recipient.
