"The Six Points Fellowship for Emerging Jewish Artists is accepting applications for its next cohort of artists.
The fellowship program will support nine individual artists in New York City between the ages of 22 and 38 who are working in the visual arts, music, and performing arts and who want to develop a new project with a Jewish focus, theme, or element.
The program seeks projects that reflect or embody a thoughtful engagement with Jewish experience, history, values, issues, or concerns and that will resonate with a broad range of audiences but with particular emphasis on the artist's peers. During the two-year fellowship, artists will create and present their diverse projects to young audiences in the New York area through programs such as live performances, concerts, and gallery events.
To be eligible, artists need to have lived in New York City for one year prior to the fellowship start date (October 2010) and should already have networks and connections in New York City, which Six Points can help them use and leverage.
Each of the fellowships will provide a stipend of up to $20,000 over two years, a project grant of up to $20,000 over two years, and retreats, monthly workshops, coaching, and mentorship."
