HONORING PRIDE & VINCENT

About The Vincent Prize

In anticipation of our 50th Anniversary in 2023, the Millay Colony for the Arts has created a special funded residency honoring founder/poet/activist Edna St. Vincent Millay’s identity and beliefs. The Vincent Prize will both acknowledge and celebrate the life and legacy of “Vincent” (Edna’s preferred name from a young age), who identified as openly gender non-conforming and was unapologetically bisexual.

The Vincent Prize will be presented to two awardees annually and is dedicated to supporting critical work by trans* and genderqueer writers, visual artists, filmmakers and composers; it is open to alumni as well as new applicants. Work considered may be multidisciplinary, focused on gatekeepers and the particular challenges facing trans* creators whose work is often ignored silenced/excluded and otherwise marginalized. We encourage contemporary queer art-making that takes risks and is not confined by outside expectation of what trans* art should be.

There are many barriers in place that make it difficult for trans* artists to be able to participate in residency programs, in addition to room and board, your donation will help create a stipend to offset travel and materials costs. With your support, together we can create a safe and nurturing community where trans* creators can immerse themselves in the creation of new works that would otherwise not be possible.


Thank you!

From all of us at Millay Colony
