Deadline March 3, 2008: The Center for Emerging Visual Artists (CFEVA), in partnership with New Courtland Elder Services (NCES), is pleased to offer Philadelphia area artists the opportunity to participate in an exciting, new, community-based fellowship. Through the New Courtland Artist Fellowship, eight artists will be selected to bring innovative and engaging art-making to residents of NCES facilities. In order to apply, artists are asked to develop an intergenerational project that brings New Courtland’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 2008 Fellowship Program will be exhibited with the work of the artist fellows in a large, well publicized exhibition entitled Art is Ageless.
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 one sensitivity training session and participating in the Art is Ageless exhibition in Fall 2008. 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.
