Art and culture have the power to change lives, and we want to support the next generation of cultural leaders in doing just that.
We are offering three fellowship grants of £4000 for socially-engaged emerging cultural leaders in the UK to conduct residencies of two to three weeks with host organizations in Los Angeles. Residencies may take place any time during the spring or summer of 2014.
Each residency will use arts, culture or social action to promote shared economic and social goals between global citizens. The fellowship program will also help each participant hone his or her leadership skills, provide networking opportunities, and build transatlantic relationships to promote cross-cultural projects or partnerships.
In 2011 and 2012 we invited artists, arts or cultural managers, cultural educators, creative presenters, social entrepreneurs and community activists who are in the beginning stages of this kind of work to apply for the grants. The emerging cultural leaders we selected for these residencies all address contemporary social issues through the lens of arts and culture and show evidence of growing accomplishments in these fields.
Applications are now open. The deadline to apply is Wednesday December 18 at 11.55pm PST.
