Micro-Fest Fellowship Program

Posted: Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012 at 5:48 pm in Opportunities

As part of the Micro-Fest USA initiative, the Network of Ensemble Theaters is inviting applications for the inaugural Micro-Fest Fellowship Program, a leadership development opportunity targeting artists and their community peers/collaborators who are collectively engaging in community development and creative placemaking.

The Fellowship opportunity is only available to artists and community members in Detroit, Appalachia (Knoxville, TN/Harlan, KY), New Orleans and Honolulu.

Over a 10-month period, a cohort of eight (8) Fellows will come together five times to discuss and explore the dynamics of arts-driven, cross sector collaborations (i.e. artists/arts organizations and other sectors). Activities will include explorations of collaboration models, intimate conversations with leaders in these practices, skill building, reflection and study of cross sector collaboration practices/challenges, support for individual projects, facilitation and organizing skills. NET will cover travel and lodging expenses during the Fellowship period to attend Fellowship events/meetings.

Three things to know about the application process:

  1. Deadline: Applications are due July 20, 2012 at 9pm PST
  2. Interviews: A short list of finalists will be invited to a phone interview.
  3. Decision: Candidates will be notified of their acceptance by August 1, 2012
