NEFA Scholarship Opportunities for AFTA Convention
The Americans for the Arts annual convention is coming to Boston in June!
The event covers a wide range of topics for arts leaders and NEFA would like to make it a bit easier for New Englanders to attend. We are offering two opportunities for financial support:
A $500 stipend for the full convention. This application is open to arts leaders from CT, ME, NH, RI, VT. Deadline: March 20
A $200 stipend for the convention’s Public Art Preconference. This application is open to public art leaders from all six New England states. Deadline: March 20
Both of the NEFA scholarships will be determined in time to take advantage of AFTA’s April 8 early bird registration deadline.
Folks from Massachusetts should check out the generous scholarships offered by the Massachusetts Cultural Council; scroll down the page most of the way.
Our partners at the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts have scholarship opportunities; contact them directly at 401.222.3880.
The event will include sessions, keynote addresses, performances, neighborhood art tours, peer meetings with other local arts leaders, and a great opening reception at the Top of the Hub. NEFA is proud to be a part of the event’s local host committee, stay tuned for more details.
