The Alliance of Artists Communities has announced the six inaugural recipients of its Diversity and Leadership Fellowship. Funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, the fellowship aims to promote equity in the residency field through direct support of emerging arts administrators of color and administrators with disabilities regardless of their current role. It supports the cost of participation in the Alliance’s annual conference; a site visit to a leading artist residency center in spring 2018; facilitated peer exchanges; and the cost of participation in the 2018 Emerging Program Institute. The fellowship expands upon a successful pilot program undertaken last year. Read the full announcement.
