2018 Jerome Travel Grant Recipients Announced

Congratulations to Saymoukda Duangphouxay Vongsay who was named as one of the 2018 Jerome Travel Grant Recipients recently. This marks the final year of the Travel and Study program, which began in 1986 and awarded 1,109 grants to emerging artists and Minnesota-based arts administrators. Future support for travel and study opportunities have been included within the new Artist Fellowship program, which will award grants in 2019.

Saymoukda Vongsay was awarded $5,000 “to travel to Nong Khai, Thailand and Luang Prabang, Laos for 15 days. As an essential part of the refugee healing process, Vongsay will travel to Nongkhai, Thailand and Vientiane, Laos to retrace, reimagine, and record her family’s journey after the Secret War.”
