Announcing | Participants in the 2018-19 Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program: Detroit
Meet this year’s participants!
Through the support of Ford Foundation, The New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) is pleased to announce the participants in the 2018-19 NYFA Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program: Detroit, which is presented in collaboration with local partners Creative Many, Arab American National Museum, and Global Detroit.
The program combines two of NYFA’s professional development programs: the Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program, which provides access to artist mentors and art professionals via panels and workshops, and the Artist As Entrepreneur Boot Camp, which provides artists with the fundamental principles of sustainability in the arts. Featured topics include strategic planning, finance, law, marketing, and fundraising, with additional material drawn from NYFA’s newly-revised popular textbook The Profitable Artist (Allworth Press, 2018).
