The International Festival of Arts & Ideas Fall 2010 is pleased to announce its Fall 2010 Fellowship program. The inaugural program was launched in January 2010, providing opportunities for high school juniors and seniors to develop their communication and leadership skills as they prepared to pursue college and/or enter the workforce.
The program combines instruction in critical writing, nonprofit management and various arts disciplines, with opportunities for job shadowing and hands-on work experience around Festival events. Fellows were also tasked with viewing various performances and exhibits and writing reviews which were posted on the Festival blog.
It is our belief that the arts contribute to the overall vitality and connectedness of our community and that exposure to the arts by our young people is especially critical to their future success. Each student that completes the program will receive a stipend of $500.
