Dedeaux-Norris is not a filmmaker by trade, but for the past decade has been gathering footage for an evolving project.
When they participated in an informational session about the Iowa Artist Fellowship Program, one example was about an artist finishing a film and taking it to a festival.
That’s exactly what Dedeaux-Norris needed to do.
And that’s exactly what they’ll get to do.
Dedeaux-Norris is one of three Iowa City recipients of $10,000 grants from the Iowa Artist Fellowship Program. There are five recipients for this particular grant, with the others artist recipients based in Dubuque and Grinnell.
The program is designed to support creatives who show “commitment to advancing their artistic practices at a pivotal moment in their careers,” according to the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs.
The Press-Citizen interviewed the three Iowa City recipients to learn more about their work and what audiences can expect to see.
