Foundation / Corporation
New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) and The Vilcek Foundation
Grants to New York individual immigrant performing artists and writers in the New York City Metropolitan area for one-on-one mentoring services and peer support. Funding is intended to help non-USA-born artists achieve goals for their artistic career and to provide them with increased access to the New York cultural world and beyond through an exchange of ideas, resources, and experiences.
The program is open to performing artists working in music and composition, dance and choreography, performance art, and theater arts (acting, producing, directing), and writers including playwrights, storytellers, and poets, as well as those working in fiction and nonfiction. In bringing these two disciplines together, the program aims to nurture a productive environment for collaboration.
Additionally, the mentoring program fosters a community, providing opportunities to connect with other immigrant artists through group meetings, peer learning, and informal gatherings that include alumni from 2007 to the present. Through access to other artists, arts professionals, and organizations, the program offers immigrant artists the opportunity to focus on their career goals while navigating the shared experience and challenges of being an immigrant artist.
