AS220 Accepting Practice//Practice Applications

AS220 is now accepting applications for the 2020 session (May 6-9) of Practice//Practice, our four day professional development program for arts administrators!  We’d be so grateful if you could help us spread the word amongst your networks.  We’d extra specially love it if you could think about any young, emerging arts administrators and leaders and/or people of color you could encourage to apply – it would be amazing if you could find 3 people to tell about the opportunity!  Attached is a handy flyer you can forward to said people.  [Please note: AS220 is only doing 1 session of Practice//Practice in 2020 as opposed to 2, so encourage people to apply with that in mind!]

Deadline for applications is Sunday March 8.  Thanks to The Sustainable Arts Foundation, we’re offering scholarships again for parents to attend (more info HERE).  Information about the 2020 session of Practice//Practice is available HERE and the application form (along with the Parent Fellowship application) is HERE!

The City of Providence invites artists with a social practice to participate in a new pilot training in Artist Facilitation and Community Health Work followed by a three-month residency in a community-based organization. Co-led by Providence’s Department of Art, Culture + Tourism (ACT) and Healthy Communities Office, the Creative Community Health Worker Fellowship will provide a cohort of five Providence-based artists 70 hours of training under Dr. Dannie Ritchie, Director of Community Health Innovations of Rhode Island and three Artist-Facilitators, Laura Brown-Lavoie, Vatic Kuumba and Valerie Tutson. This pilot program is designed to support artists to become RI certified Community Health Workers, expanding the impact of the arts on addressing social determinants of health. This fellowship is an extension of the City’s Sowing Place Initiative, generously funded by the Kresge Foundation. Submission deadline is January 23, 2020.
