Fellowship Applications Open

Betty’s Daughter Arts Collaborative invites competitive applications for its Public Performance Art and Arts-in-Action fellowship program.  Conceived in 2009, BDAC’s fellowship program advances the brilliant work of artists, activists, and educators through real-world training in cultural strategy, community arts education, art administration, public performance, and cultural activism.  To date, BDAC has trained more than 500 practitioners, through its fellowship program and affiliate professional development offerings with collaborators and clients.

All are encouraged to apply, regardless of race, class, educational background, citizenship status, performance skills, ability, gender, sexual orientation, and religion.  BDAC is a no hate zone.  We are guided by womanism, racial justice, social justice, cultural wellness, collaboration, shared work, and responsibility. 

The Public Performance Art (PPA) Fellowship focuses on solo and collaborative street performance, ritual poetics, live art, theatre, and performance installation.  Fellows are expected to participate in a local convening, present a solo work-in-progress and perform in a collaborative public performance.  Twenty fellows will be accepted.  Course credit optional.

Camille A. Brown Presents: The Gathering

  • Gibney Dance

Ebony Noelle Golden will co-facilitate The Gathering with Sydnie Mosley. Conceived by choreographer Camille A. Brown, The Gathering serves as an open forum for intergenerational black female artists to support one another and to advocate for greater cultural equity and acknowledgement in the contemporary dance world.  As trendsetters and pioneers who merit more widespread public recognition for their innovations, this evolving group of black choreographers will meet to examine the reasons for this precedent and to embark on a mission to make their work more broadly accessible and appreciated.
