The School of Arts & Culture at the Mexican Heritage Plaza (SOAC), an Administering Organization of the California Arts Council, has extended the application deadline to August 14, 2020 for the California Arts Council Administrators of Color Fellowship program.
The statewide pilot program will match 10 arts administrators of color, Fellows, with an arts and culture organization, Host Organizations, dedicated to equity and community engagement for a nine- to 12-month fellowship with $50,000 stipends for Fellows and $35,000 for Host Organizations.
About the California Arts Council Administrators of Color Fellowship Program
The California Arts Council Administrators of Color Fellowship program was initiated by the California Arts Council with the goal of uplifting an inclusive workforce and supporting the vibrancy of organizations that create and preserve the cultural identities of all California communities. The pilot program is made possible by a grant from the James Irvine Foundation and one-time increased state arts funding.
This is a great opportunity for artists and/or arts administrators to receive firsthand experience from an arts and/or cultural organization and build an arts network committed to achieving cultural and racial equity. Individuals from rural and underserved communities are encouraged to apply.
The deadline to submit your application has been extended to August 14, 11:59 p.m.
