2015 ArtsLink Fellows in Performing Arts and Literature

US non-profit organizations are eligible to apply for an award to host an ArtsLink Fellow. In 2015, these are artists and arts managers working in performing arts and literature from any of 37 eligible countries*. These Fellows have been selected by US arts professionals in a highly competitive peer review process.

ArtsLink eliminates the administrative and logistical tasks associated with hosting an international visitor by arranging visas, organizing and paying for international and domestic travel and hosting an orientation and a concluding session in New York. Host organizations receive funding to cover the living, working and materials costs for the ArtsLink Fellow’s residency, as well as modest administrative expenses for the host. During the five-week residency, ArtsLink staff is available to provide guidance and advice to host organizations.

The residency period will be October 8 through November 11, 2015.

Deadline: 1 June
