Event | NYFA Resources and Services Talk with NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship Info Session in Lake Placid, NY

Artists of all disciplines are invited to join us in Lake Placid, NY on Saturday, September 15.

The New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA), in partnership with New York State Council on the Arts’ (NYSCA) State & Local Partnerships program, will present a free public event for artists of all disciplines in collaboration with the Lake Placid Center For the Arts. This programming is part of NYFA’s entrepreneurial training in the Lake Placid region including Essex, Franklin, Clinton, and Warren counties.

NYFA will present an overview of its 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 artistic residency, or trying to find a job, NYFA has resources that you can use to help you sustain and grow your artistic practice. Particular emphasis will be placed on providing information on the NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship, an unrestricted grant of $7,000 for which artists residing in New York State are eligible.

As part of the event, Techung (Tay-Choong, Fellow in Folk/Traditional Arts ‘18) will share his artwork and experience receiving a NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship. Techung is a Tibetan folk and freedom singer who is regarded as one of the key holders of Tibetan traditional music. He plays dranyen (drum-nain) and other traditional musical instruments, and has toured internationally and performed in all the Tibetan Freedom Concert series alongside the Beastie Boys, U2, REM, and others. In recent years and on numerous occasions he has opened for His Holiness the Dalai Lama, performing in advance of the spiritual leader’s public talks.
