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:

  1. A $500 stipend for the full convention. This application is open to arts leaders from CT, ME, NH, RI, VT. Deadline: March 20
    Apply by March 20
  2. 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
    Apply by 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.

Be sure to view the other scholarships and ways to save opportunities offered by Americans for the Arts.

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.
