Fellowship VI – Framework Components & Structure

The Fellowship will be focused on personal development through reading, reflection and dialogue. Fellows will have the opportunity to gain important peer coaching skills and engage in one-on-one coaching while developing a personal vision statement. While individual development is paramount, we also believe in the importance of our network. Fellows will also explore their network assets and develop strategies to successfully operate within the larger arts ecosystem.

The second half of the Fellowship will explore our work’s context through the following lens: Creative City, Cultural Equity, Arts & Enterprise, and Regenerative Practices. We’ll develop a common language and explore multiple perspectives on these topics, with the goal of working in teams around these topics to create a project (product/event/research) as the culminating learning experience
