Highlights from the January IAP Newsletter #89
Are you currently receiving our free Con Edison Immigrant Artist Program Newsletter?
In light of President Trump’s executive order on immigration, we used our January newsletter to highlight organizations that offer help to our immigrant artist community during these uncertain times. It is our mission to serve artists of all races, religions, and sexual orientations, and we are dedicated to connecting immigrant artists working in New York with services and resources that foster their creative careers and uphold and celebrate their distinct identities. If you missed this month’s edition and you’re looking for assistance, don’t forget that the IAP Resource Directory has a comprehensive round-up of organizations involved in the fight for immigrant rights.
Let’s keep celebrating diversity! Here are this month’s highlights:
- A featured interview conducted by Alicia Ehni with Chris Yong-Garcia, producer and founder of LatinLover Magazine.
- The Asian American Arts Alliance Town Hall, a free bi-monthly event that features performances, pitches, and a potluck. This edition will celebrate Asian American dancers.
- 10 opportunities and deadlines including the NYSCA 2017 Electronic Media & Film Finishing Fund Grants, where $500 to $2,500 are awarded to support artists living in New York State in the completion/post-production of film, video, sound, new media, and web-based work; and the Restless Books Prize for New Immigrant Writing call for submissions of non-fiction work by immigrants or first-generation immigrants to the U.S.
- January’s Featured Subscriber Natalie Dietz, from Australia, and her work as a vocalist and composer.
- A Save the Date for the NYFA Hall of Fame Benefit on April 4, 2017, and for our next Spanish Doctor’s Hours on March 20.
