DEAR Artists’ Virtual Retreat - Cohort II
Applications being accepted for the second cohort of our Digital Evolution Artist Retention (DEAR) program. This professional development lab is designed to give participating artists and arts practitioners of African descent the opportunity to connect, reflect, and strategize in a community of peers committed to growth and adaptation against the backdrop of these unprecedented times. Selected participants will receive a stipend in support of their artistic practice, resilience, and sustainability, during the current crisis.
The DEAR Artists’ Virtual Retreat is organized as a community of peer learning, mentorship, and support which will explore a range of tools and practices that cut across disciplines and levels of experience, to further strengthen artists’ ability to create, teach, and promote their work in our present context and beyond. This virtual convening space will include facilitated learning and visioning circles, skills-based workshops, individual and small group reflection and practice space, self-paced professional development activities, and one-to-one peer support and networking opportunities.
There is no cost to apply or participate. Apply by April 2, 2021 to be considered.
