FINANCIAL SUPPORT

Fellows will have the opportunity to travel and attend conferences and retreats and will receive a monetary stipend to offset costs related to the development of their creative work.

 

MUSICAL COACHING

Fellows will receive individual musical instruction and mentorship and have access to a local and national network of musicians, mentors, and past fellows.

 

COMMUNITY COLLABORATION

Fellows will work together throughout the year on a capstone performance project that will use art as a means to bridge divides in their community and address a pressing social or political issue that is meaningful to the group.


We are committed to supporting diversity and inclusion within Austin's arts community.
