The Creative Entrepreneur Fellowship
Now accepting applications!
The Creative Entrepreneur Fellowship (CEF) is a customized professional development experience designed to create career momentum for a diverse group of artists and creative solopreneurs. The program includes personalized goal setting, one-on-one coaching, skills-training seminars, a $1000 stipend for business-related purchases, and an opportunity to showcase work at a capstone event. Each year, 7-10 individuals are selected for the program through a competitive application process. The program kicks off in November and runs through June. Workshops are held in Roxbury as well as at the A&BC offices.
To complete the application process, you will need to provide a short essay (500 words or less) introducing your art/craft/creative practice and how you think the CEF will benefit you. You will also be asked to upload 2-5 attachments that best represent the work you do. You will be able to save this application and return to it later, but please be advised that the application period will close at midnight on October 3, 2016. We look forward to receiving your submission!
This program is supported by the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation, the Clowes Family Foundation, and the Boston Cultural Council, a local agency that is funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council and administrated by the Mayor’s Office of Arts, Tourism, and Special Events.
