Call for Artists – NewCourtland

This Deadline Expired: Saturday, April 2, 2016

Deadline April 1: 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 2016. Selected artists are asked to develop an intergenerational project that brings seniors from New Courtland programs 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 2016 Fellowship Program will be exhibited with the work of the artist fellows in a large, well-publicized exhibition in Summer 2017.

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 2017. 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.
