NewCourtland Fellowship

Apply NOW- 2009 NewCourtland Fellowship

Deadline February 15, 2009

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, new, community-based fellowship. Through the NewCourtland Artist Fellowship, eight artists will be selected to bring innovative and engaging art-making to residents of the vast NewCourtland network (http://www.newcourtland.org). In order to apply, artists are asked to develop an intergenerational project that brings NewCourtland’s residents together with school age children/teens to create a meaningful experience and an exciting artistic project. Work created by residents and their school age partners during the 2009 Fellowship Program will be exhibited with the work of the artist fellows in a large, well publicized exhibition.
Accepted artists will receive a fellowship award of $2,500 (to be paid in two $1,250 installments). Once artists receive this award they will be responsible for conducting ten 1.5 hour workshops weekly for NewCourtland residents (10-15 residents) and their student partners (10-15 students). Artists will also be required to attend several preliminary meetings, one aging sensitivity training session and participate in the spring 2010 exhibition http://www.cfeva.org/publications.aspx
