Each June, NXTHVN welcomes up to seven artists, two curators, and eight New Haven high school students to its annual Studio and Curatorial Fellowships programs. Through a proprietary curriculum that focuses on mentorship, professional development, and skills training, members of the cohort cultivate their individual practices within a collaborative, community-driven context.
Deadline: 1 Nov 2020
Each fellow mentors a local high school apprentice, providing them with hands-on instruction in studio and curatorial practices. Through active participation in NXTHVN’s year-long programs, early-career artists and curators make the personal strides and interpersonal connections that advance their careers.
