Jose Arenivar, BFA, was just awarded a 2015 NCECA Multicultural Fellowship to support his travel to this years NCECA Conference: Lively Experiments.
About the Fellowship:
In 2014, NCECA keynote speaker Theaster Gates challenged NCECA’s conference attendees to cultivate greater diversity in the field through simple, direct and meaningful gestures of welcome. NCECA is instituting a pilot program whose goal is to increase participation by individuals of diverse cultural backgrounds that have traditionally been underrepresented in our conference and membership. This will be accomplished in part by providing resources to those who might not otherwise attend an annual NCECA conference. The Chipstone Foundation and individual donors to NCECA have generously sponsored these fellowships.
Current NCECA members are strongly encouraged to issue personal invitations to friends and contacts who they believe will provide value to NCECA and themselves through this opportunity.
Up to 6 NCECA Multicultural Fellowships will be awarded for participation in Lively Experiments, NCECA’s 2015 conference in Providence, Rhode Island, March 25-28, 2015.
Each successful nominee will receive one year’s membership to NCECA and a full registration for the 2015 Providence, RI conference. Additionally, awardees will be eligible to receive up to $850 in support. Half of this amount ($425) will be made prior to the conference to assist with travel and lodging costs. Following conference, awardees may submit original receipts to support reimbursement of eligible expenses up to an additional $425. Eligible expenses include travel, lodging, meals, and tickets for exhibition shuttles/ tours, venue admission fees.
