VSA arts - 2008
Funded in March, 2008: $75000 for 2 years
VSA arts received funding to expand the Teaching Artist Fellowship, piloted in 2007 using Dana funds. The goal of the Fellowship is to develop the knowledge and skill of artists with disabilities as teaching artists. Up to six artists each year will be trained through the VSA arts Institute (a week-long workshop), two in-school residencies, and mentoring relationship with a recognized teaching artist. The long term goal is to establish a cadre of artists that will continue to encourage the practice and promise of each other.
