NewCourtland Artist Fellowship

DEADLINE: APRIL 24, 2017

The Center for Emerging Visual Artists (CFEVA), in partnership with NewCourtland, is pleased to offer Philadelphia area artists the opportunity to participate in an exciting, community-based fellowship. Through the NewCourtland Artist Fellowship, visual artists will be selected to bring innovative and engaging art-making to seniors in sites throughout Philadelphia in either Summer or Fall 2017. In order to apply, artists are asked to develop an intergenerational project that brings members of  New Courtland together with school age children/teens to create a meaningful experience and a high quality artistic project. Work created by seniors and their school-aged partners during the 2017 Fellowship Program will be exhibited with the work of the artist fellows in a large, well publicized exhibition in Summer 2018.

2017 NewCourtland Artist Fellowship includes STIPEND + SUPPLIES

Accepted artists will receive a fellowship award of $2,500. Once artists receive this award they will be responsible for conducting ten 1.5 hour workshops, attending several preliminary and post-workshop meetings, attending one sensitivity training session, and participating in an exhibition in Summer 2018. Artists will also be separately compensated for purchasing all necessary art supplies and professionally presenting the artwork created in their program for the final exhibition.
