Event | NYFA Resources and Services Talk in Olean, NY

Artists of all disciplines are invited to join us in Western New York on Saturday, September 9.

New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA), in partnership with the New York State Council on the Arts’ (NYSCA) State & Local Partnerships program, will present a free public program for artists in collaboration with Cattaraugus County Arts Council (CCAC)

The event will include an overview of NYFA’s free and low-cost national programs and services. Whether you’re trying to raise money to finish a particular project, seeking feedback on your work, looking for an artist residency, or trying to find a job, NYFA has resources you can use to help sustain and grown your artistic practice. 

The Resources and Services Talk will also offer a focus on the NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship, an unrestricted grant of $7,000, for which artists residing in New York State are eligible. Information on the application process and upcoming cycle will be provided. Artist Phil Hastings (Fellow in Video/Film ‘12) will be present, joining NYFA staff to offer tips and advice for putting together a strong application. An opportunity for Q&A will be provided.

The program is part of NYFA’s entrepreneurial training in Cattaraugus, Allegany, and Chautauqua Counties.
