The Camille J. Gage Artist Fellowship provides a platform to honor Minnesota-based artists who have demonstrated a legacy of service with their creative gifts at the intersections of art and activism, to be recognized for their contributions, plus offered financial resources and organizational support to more deeply impact their communities.

YWCA Minneapolis, with its bold mission of eliminating racism and empowering women, was selected as the host organization of the fellowship as it most aligned with how Camille engaged with the community and for people with marginalized identities.

The 2024-2025 Camille J. Gage Fellowship awardee will receive a $45,000 fellowship award and a yearlong opportunity to promote their work in partnership with YWCA Minneapolis. The awardee will be publicly recognized in person at the 2024 Empower Possible annual YWCA Minneapolis gala on April 27, 2024.

Artists can apply directly or be nominated for the award. For nominations, collaboration with the prospective nominee to complete the application is strongly encouraged. A group of YWCA Minneapolis leaders, family and close collaborators of Camille J. Gage will select the awardee.
