The South Florida Cultural Consortium Visual and Media Artists Fellowship Program is a cooperative project funded in part with the support of the National Endowment for the Arts, the Florida Department of State Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Arts Council, the Boards of County Commissioners of Broward, Miami-Dade, Martin and Monroe counties, and the Palm Beach County Cultural Council.

The South Florida Cultural Consortium, an alliance of the local art agencies in Martin, Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe counties, assists visual artists and media artists through cash awards solely on the basis of creative excellence to foster artistic development and encourage career advancement.

Formed in 1985, the Consortium operates under an inter-local government agreement to coordinate projects and share resources for the growth of South Florida cultural activities, organizations and artists. It provides regional cultural planning, new project development, statewide cultural marketing, information sharing, regional arts education training and support for ethnic and rural audience development.
