Through the support of the Ford Foundation, the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) is pleased to announce the Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program: San Antonio, presented in collaboration with San Antonio local partners including  SAY SíBlue Star Contemporary, San Antonio Museum of Art, City of San Antonio – Department of Arts and Culture, and the National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures.

The program’s goal, within an inclusive safe space, is to foster a local community of artists sharing the immigrant experience and provide resources through entrepreneurial training, access to other artists, arts professionals, and organizations. The program offers immigrant artists the opportunity to focus on their creative practice and gain support and exposure for their work while upholding their distinct cultural identities.

The program will combine two of NYFA’s professional development programs, the Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program in which NYFA provides access to artist mentors, art professionals via panels and workshops, with NYFA’s Artist As Entrepreneur Boot Camps that provide artists with the fundamental principles of sustainability in the arts.

This is a competitive program open to artists from all disciplines (performing, literary, visual, multi-disciplinary, video/fim/new media, interdisciplinary, folk and traditional arts) based in San Antonio, TX and provided free of charge to accepted participants. Program will run from February 2018 to June 2018, and will bring together San Antonio artists to nurture a productive environment for collaboration.
