The Wellspring Fellowship
A wellspring is an original and bountiful source. At The Well, we seek to collaborate with, feature and learn from original voices in mindfulness, music, movement and creativity via The Wellspring Fellowship.
The Wellspring Fellowship is a four month virtual residency designed to lift up and share the work of our fellows, and to broaden our understanding of how to best serve personal growth, relational empathy and collective, public reconciliation and healing.
Fellows receive a stipend and an opportunity for their programs or process to be featured in The Well’s portal. Additionally, Wellspring Fellows will attend several Well Events (both internal strategy sessions and external public programs) throughout the four-month period.
Each fellowship comes with an intentional agreement to best match our individual fellow’s goals and to determine the most meaningful collaboration.
