APPLY FOR THE ILI FELLOWSHIP
Applications for ILI Year are accepted from established and emerging artists, culture bearers and other arts practitioners in various stages of career development.
Preparing to Apply
PROGRAM FORMAT & DATES
Due to the pandemic, ILI will be a completely virtual experience. Participants will be able to participate via video call, phone, independent and group study, and by snail mail. In light of the nature of self isolation/quarantine and political uprisings in our society, ILI is committed to centering participant self care through and creating a culture of flexibility through the fellowship experience.
VIRTUAL COMMUNITY CIRCLES
Virtual Community Circles occur between intensives, and create an opportunity for participants to check-in, build trust, and engage in ongoing conversation and skill building outside of the designated in-person time.
Participants are assigned to small learning pods for more intimate conversation and processing space of ILI subject matter. Learning Pods are supported by a team of core facilitators and work to have participants ignite intercultural values and learnings in practice throughout the ILI experience.
SELECTION PROCESS, ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS & Application SUPPORT
Artists, culture bearers and arts practitioners in various stages of career development may submit interest. Up to 25 people will be selected to participate in the Institute. Interest Forms will be reviewed by a panel that includes members of the ILI community.
At the time of submission, the submitter must be an artist, culture bearer, or arts practitioner. Successful participants will demonstrate strong leadership potential within the field of arts and culture as well as a deep commitment to community, social change and/or cultural equity. The program will be rigorous and will require commitment to attend three in-person convenings as well as participation in online sessions, peer interaction and other engagement over the course of a one-year period. All program costs including accommodation and travel will be covered for program participants by ILI and our funding partners.
If you have questions or need submission support, please contact ILI at firstname.lastname@example.org and a team member will be in touch with you by phone or email within 48-hours.
