Interested in being an Arts Mentoring Fellow?

Attend Fellowship Information Sessions to learn more about this opportunity on Monday April 16, 2012 from 7-8pm or Wednesday April 25 from 6:00 – 7:00pm, located at 705 Westminster Street in Providence, RI. 

New Urban Arts will award 2012-13 fellowships to two established artists and educators in a yearlong position to (1) support artist mentors who volunteer to mentor high school students in the arts; (2) bring their creative practice to our community art studio as an artist in residence, and (3) explore and share intersections and ideas across creative practice and community practice as a reflective practitioner and active presence in the New Urban Arts studio. The fellows jointly curate New Urban Arts Conversations, a public series in which diverse individuals share how they integrate creativity into their personal and professional lives. 

The fellowship is a yearlong commitment of approximately 15-20 hours per week that begins October 1 and ends June 1, with an opportunity for a one-year renewal.Fellows receive a financial stipend, studio space and the opportunity to investigate and explore the intersection of creative practice and community practice within a nationally recognized community art studio.
