Celebrating the Creative Entrepreneur Fellowship

The A&BC will host an exhibition celebrating the work and art of its Creative Entrepreneur Fellowship (CEF) participants at City Hall in the Scollay Square Gallery during late April through the month of May in 2024. The exhibition celebrates 10 years of the program centering its mission around supporting under-represented communities. The exhibition aims to provide a platform for promoting, supporting, and celebrating the artists’ creative practices and mark the culmination of a decade of CEF and the community it has fostered.

CEF aims to serve makers and creatives in the community—empowering creative entrepreneurs who inspire and educate their peers, creating a powerful, long-term ripple effect in their communities. Candelaria Silva-Collins has led the program for almost a decade, as its artist centered champion. Ileana Doble Hernandez now leads the program as CEF Coordinator. This is the first year the program will be run predominantly in Spanish.
