The Chicago Critic’s Table is Arts + Public Life’s new eight-month, paid incubator for emerging Chicago cultural critics. It offers emerging critics the opportunity to build a lasting network of colleagues working across a range of topics, methods, and platforms in order to support and experiment with each other as they continue to develop their voice, practice, and audience. In particular, this program seeks to foster critics whose work focuses on arts and culture as relevant to South Side communities.

The cohort consists of 6 fellows in total, with two spots reserved for UChicago Graduate students. There are no university requirements for the other four spots. Fellows will receive an unrestricted stipend totaling $5,000.00, paid out on a bi-weekly basis over the 8 months.
