Asian American Arts Alliance Launches Actor and Director Fellowships | Artist Opportunities | Scoop.it
NEW YORK CITY: The Asian American Arts Alliance has launched the 2016 Van Lier Fellowship, aimed at actors and directors under 30 years old, living in New York City. The fellowship will come with $12,000 and an eight-month residency at the Alliance. The fellowship is part of a three-year cycle of fellowships for artists in theatre, music, and visual arts. The first year will focus on theatre artists, awarding eight-month fellowships to one actor and one director of Asian descent. The fellows will be announced in June. “The Alliance is thrilled to be offering this extraordinary opportunity to young Asian American theatre professionals in New York City,” said Andrea Louie, executive director of the Alliance, in a statement. “The launch of this terrific program has never been more timely, particularly with campaigns such as #OscarsSoWhite, which raise awareness of the systemic issues of representation, diversity, inclusion, and equity in the arts. It’s our hope that programs such as the Van Lier Fellowships will help advance the careers of exceptional young Asian American theatre artists at pivotal moments, providing the public recognition, financial support, and artistic guidance that will impact them across a lifetime of making work. We also hope the experience will help encourage these young artists to serve as mentors themselves, fostering a culture of generosity in what can be a challenging field.” The Van Lier Fellowship is supported with a grant from the New York Community Trust. The residency at the Alliance will run July 2016 to February 2017. It will include a leadership coaching series, artistic mentorship with a mid-career theatre professional, and professional technical resources. Applicants can apply online here.

The scope and breadth of Interlochen’s programs is expansive and unmatched. Over the last twelve years, under Jeffrey Kimpton’s leadership, Interlochen has experienced unprecedented growth in financial stability, capital investments, and programmatic offerings. Both Camp and Academy enrollments have grown steadily over the last decade, and the Academy has added new areas of study in motion picture arts, comparative arts, and singer/songwriter. A comprehensive series of capital projects and campus improvements have updated performance/studio spaces, classrooms, and on-campus housing. Interlochen’s faculty and staff are accomplished artists and educators, the student body is evermore distinguished and diverse, and Interlochen’s loyal, dedicated alumni – who today number over 120,000 – are recognized the world over as leaders, performers, advocates, and teachers in the arts and other professions. Interlochen’s next President will be expected to build on this extraordinary momentum. She or he must have a proven record of institutional leadership and management success, a deep passion for the arts and education, and a firm understanding of ICA’s educational mission and culture. The President should be an entrepreneurial leader, a big-picture thinker, and a lifelong learner with the ability to articulate a comprehensive and compelling vision for Interlochen’s future. The next President must also value the purpose and contributions of each distinct piece of the Interlochen quilt and, at the same time, appreciate how each segment, when woven together, strengthens the whole. It is in the synergies between and among Interlochen’s programs where creativity, innovation, and artistic expression flourish, and the community is undeniably enhanced by each of its component parts.
