COMMUNITY ARTISTS (fellowship) / by Bear Guerra

Via NAS:

“Arts and culture can be a powerful force for positive community change. That's why creative people who are called to strengthen their communities need to be supported.

Driving transformation through arts and culture can be daunting, difficult and often lonely. Creative Community Fellows brings cultural trailblazers across New England together for six months, to be part of something bigger, to learn life-changing skills and to see dreams become reality.

 

You are...

a creative change-maker in your community. You use the power of arts and culture to drive equitable social or physical transformations in your world, alongside local partners.

You have...

a good start, but want to advance your project to make an even greater impact. So you’ll need the curiosity, an open mind and determination to tackle the challenges ahead.

You'll gain...

understanding of strategy, design thinking and leadership from University of Pennsylvania faculty, NAS, leading mentors and practitioners in the field, as well as your peers. 94% of Fellows said they gained new skills relevant to their work.

You'll use...

your new knowledge right away. Together, we’ll test, adapt and build on your work. You’ll walk away with clarity…and a game plan. 90% of Fellows said they shared learnings from the program with their collaborators and organizations.

You'll join...

an incredible community of collaborators dedicated to learning from and sharing with each other. It’s a connected cohort that continues to support each other long after the program concludes.”

DEADLINE: April 22.
