Arts Services Initiative to host NY Foundation for Arts in Buffalo


Mon, Aug 6th 2018 02:05 pm
Learn about NYFA's 2019 artist fellowship opportunity ($7,000 cash grant)
Arts Services Initiative of Western New York announced the next session in its professional development series for artists. This workshop is free and open to everyone. Registration is encouraged by emailing [email protected] or calling 716-362-8389, ext. 512.
A seminar about the New York Foundation for the Arts fellowship will be hosted by ASI and will take place from 5-6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 21, at Squeaky Wheel Media and Arts Center, 617 Main St., Buffalo.
Artists and any organization that works directly with local artists are invited to this free workshop. Gabriella Calandro from the New York Foundation for the Arts will provide information about applying for the 2019 New York State Council on the Arts/New York Foundation for the Arts artist fellowship. It is a cash grant of $7,000, not for a specific project, but simply to give artists the time, space and resources they need to create.
For 33 years, NYFA has administered the statewide artist fellowship program on behalf of the New York State Council on the Arts.
This event will be an opportunity to hear from Calandro about the application and panel processes for the upcoming cycle, when the disciplines awarded will be:
  • Architecture/environmental structures/design
  • Choreography
  • Music/sound
  • Photography
  • Playwriting/screenwriting
More information about the fellowship can be found on the NYFA website: https://www.nyfa.org/Content/Show/Artists'-Fellowships.
"Partnering with strong statewide arts groups and arts resources has been a huge benefit to our local WNY artists and arts organizations," ASI Interim Executive Director Jen Swan said. "ASI will continue to provide these and similar professional development sessions to make sure our arts sector has the tools it needs to succeed."
ASI's professional development sessions are made possible by Fund for the Arts, Erie County, and the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
