Image for NYFA Partners with SAY Sí for Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program

Dec 11, 2017

Applications are now open for NYFA Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program: San Antonio, presented in collaboration with SAY Sí and other local partners. With support from the Ford Foundation, the Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program: San Antonio’s goal is to foster a local community of artists sharing the immigrant experience and provide resources through entrepreneurial training, access to other artists, arts professionals, and organizations. The program offers immigrant artists the opportunity to focus on their creative practice and gain support and exposure for their work while upholding their distinct cultural identities. Local cultural partners include SAY Sí, Blue Star Contemporary, Artpace, City of San Antonio – Department of Arts and Culture, and the National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures.

The initiative will combine two of NYFA’s professional development programs: the Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program, in which NYFA provides access to artist mentors and art professionals via panels and workshops, and the Artist As Entrepreneur Boot Camps, which provide artists with the fundamental principles of sustainability in the arts.

To apply or to learn more about Immigrant Artist Mentoring Programs happening in other cities, visit the NYFA website.
