Mentoring program for New York City immigrant artists who are working in the multidisciplinary or visual arts. This program provides individual support and opportunities for immigrant artists to engage in community activities, informal gatherings, and peer learning with other immigrant artists and program alumni. Participants must currently live within the NYC metropolitan area and be able to commute to New York City to attend all sessions.
NYFA’s Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program pairs immigrant artists with artist mentors who provide one-on-one support for their mentees, guiding them to achieve specific goals and providing them with broader access to the New York cultural world through an exchange of ideas, resources, and experiences.
This is a competitive program open to artists from all disciplines (drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, video, film, photography, new media, multidisciplinary, socially-engaged practices, and folk and traditional art) and provided free of charge to accepted participants.
Through access to other artists, arts professionals, and organizations, the program offers immigrant artists the opportunity to focus on their creative practice, gain support and exposure for their work, while upholding their distinct identities. Many of the mentors are immigrant artists themselves, and understand the challenges of sustaining one’s art practice while navigating different cultural perspectives in the art world. Each cycle has proven to be an invaluable experience for mentees and mentors alike, and artists often remain connected well beyond the program.
This program often benefits those who are at more emerging stages in their careers.
