4/23 deadline: Downtown Brooklyn Arts Management Fellowship

Applications deadline: April 23, 2017 at midnight.

The Downtown Brooklyn Arts Management Fellowship Program is a paid 11-month opportunity for a cohort of young people to gain experience and skills for careers in arts management.  The program aims to increase the diversity of staff in cultural organizations by creating a route into arts management without having to take unpaid internships or earn a master’s degree. It is sponsored by four organizations in the Brooklyn Cultural District:  BRIC, Mark Morris Dance Group, Theatre for a New Audience, and the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts.

Fellowship Experience

Fellows will rotate through 12-week work experience assignments at all four partner organizations.  Assignments are available in all core areas of arts management, including Development, Marketing/Community Engagement, Education, Curatorial/Programming, Production/Tech and Administration/Finance.  Fellows will be assigned a mentor during each placement to help maximize the learning experience.  It will be possible to do more than one rotation in an area of interest, but fellows will also be encouraged to experience multiple areas of work experience.

Fellows will also attend a professional development program once or twice each week that will teach leadership abilities, and offer instruction on valuable administrative skills such as how to read a financial statement.  The curriculum will include speakers, group activities, a group project, and networking opportunities.  The fellowship year is intended as a springboard for each fellow’s professional network and career in arts management.

Eligibility

  • College graduation between spring 2015 and spring 2017; or 3-4 years of work experience that substitutes for college
  • Strong interest in working for a cultural organization
  • Some experience in arts producing, presenting or administration – paid or unpaid
  • Excellent communication skills and strong computer literacy
  • Available to work full-time on weekdays, with flexibility for evening and weekend activities
  • Authorized to work in the US
  • We seek diversity across cultural background, racial identity, gender identity, economic background and physical ability.

Schedule and Pay

This is a full-time, 11-month program starting in September 2017.  Fellows must be available for full-time work on weekdays, and are flexible to attend evening events. The fellowship will pay an annual salary of $33,000 plus sick and vacation leave and medical insurance.

Applications will be accepted until April 23, 2017 at midnight. Decisions will be announced in May 2017.

The Partners

BRIC is the leading presenter of free cultural programming in Brooklyn, and one of the largest in New York City. We present and incubate work by artists and media-makers who reflect the diversity that surrounds us. BRIC programs reach hundreds of thousands of people each year.

Theatre for a New Audience opened its Polonsky Shakespeare Center in the Brooklyn Cultural District in 2013.  The Theatre has the mission to develop and vitalize the performance and study of Shakespeare and classic drama.

The Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA) uses the visual arts as a point of departure for exploring new artistic production across a variety of disciplines. Through exhibitions and programming, MoCADA incites dialogue on pressing social and political issues facing the African Diaspora and fosters a dynamic space for the creation and continuous evolution of culture.

Mark Morris Dance Group (MMDG), founded in New York City in 1980 by choreographer Mark Morris, has a mission to develop, promote, and sustain dance, music, and opera productions by Morris and to serve as a cultural resource to engage and enrich the community.

3/31 deadline: YouthBridge-NY Fellowship Program

The heart of YouthBridge-NY is its two-year Fellowship program, where high school juniors and seniors from diverse backgrounds participate in intensive trainings on leadership and diversity.

The fellowship kicks off in late August with an overnight orientation retreat, where participants get to know each other through team-building games, outdoor activities, and workshops on topics like diversity, social justice, and leadership.

Throughout the first year of the program, first-year teen Fellows participate in skill-building workshops and team-based learning opportunities; second year Bridgers are immersed in experiential learning opportunities and mentoring with successful professionals.

Each YouthBridge-NY fellowship year concludes with an End-of-Year Celebration and Bridger Graduation in June. In addition, throughout the fellowship, Fellows and Bridgers are invited to participate in volunteer opportunities, group outings, and other special events. As YouthBridge-NY alumni will tell you, the varied aspects of the YouthBridge-NY fellowship come together to create lasting friendships and an amazing network of support for years to come.

Applications are only open to 10th graders for participation during their junior and senior years. Rolling admissions: applications are considered in the order in which they are received.

The deadline for applications is Friday, March 31, 2017.
