Global Arts Management Fellowship


DeVos Institute of Arts Management at the University of Maryland


Global Arts Management Fellowship – DeVos Institute of Arts Management at the University of Maryland

Led by Institute Founder, Michael M. Kaiser, and President, Brett Egan, the global arts management Fellowship provides personalized training and support for executives from around the world. Applications are due December 15, 2017.

The program is offered free of charge to arts managers from across the United States and around the world through a competitive application process. Fellows attend a four-week residency in Washington, D.C. each summer for three consecutive years and receive ongoing personalized mentoring, both during and between the month-long residencies. Applicants must currently serve as an executive or department head within an arts or cultural organization and have a minimum of five years working experience in an administrative capacity in an arts or cultural organization. Since 2001, the Fellowship has served over 200 managers from 55 countries.

For more information and application instructions, please visit: www.DeVosInstitute.net/Fellowship

The DeVos Institute of Arts Management provides training, consultation, and implementation support for arts managers and their boards. It operates on the premise that while much is spent to train artists, too little is spent to support the managers and boards who keep those artists at work. Founded at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in 2001, the DeVos Institute transitioned to the University of Maryland in 2014, where it continues to offer support to individuals, organizations, and—in collaboration with foundations and governments—to communities of organizations around the world.

Very affordable space rental opportunity for live arts

Hello Theatre Artists, Fringers and Performance makers,

Fight With a Stick wanted to share with you a fabulous rental opportunity available immediately in Chinatown. See the message below from our friends at Left of Main:

Hello live art makers! We are a collective of three dance organizations: plastic orchid factory, MACHiNENOiSY and Tara Cheyenne Performance and the founders of Left of Main, a new 1,500 sq. ft. artist-run space at 544 Main St, on the north east corner of Main and Keefer St.

While we wait for construction permits so we can outfit the space to suit our needs we have decided to make the space available for any theatre artists or performing artists who do not require a dance floor but just a beautifully “empty space”.

Left of Main is a creative oasis conveniently located amongst the artists and entrepreneurs of Strathcona/Chinatown. The working area is approx. 1,000 sq.ft. large (see photos below). Close to the Playwrights Theatre Centre and many artist run centers such as Unit Pitt and Centre A. With Hons across the street and Matchstick coffee only a block away, your bathroom breaks could be more than just relieving, you will feel yourself a part of the city’s vibrant pulse!

As artists we understand the stress of producing on a shoestring budget so we are currently renting Left of Main at a reduced “pre-reno deal” rate of $10 an hour. For bookings contact: delia@machinenoisy.com

For more info: http://www.plasticorchidfactory.com/leftofmain/
