Applications Due for 2016/2017 Mentorship Program!
Ash Street Project Emerging Artist Mentorship Program (ASP:EAMP) is now accepting applications for the 2016/17 mentorship year, which runs September 2016-July 2017.
What we are looking for: Our program is non-traditional and organic in nature. In addition to what is stated on the website, we look for artists who are driven by a clear, attainable goal for their 11 months with us, and are relatively autonomous in their making. The success of the Ash Street Project is strongly rooted in community, and for that reason we consider what each applicant can contribute to our program.
Our application process is very straight-forward, with the interview an essential component. This allows us to determine whether we are a good fit for you, and vice versa. The ideal is for the interview to take place on site at the Ash Street Project, so that you can see the site and meet with both Thomas and Joanna. If this is not possible, we may opt for a skype interview or meeting at NCECA.
We have just three spaces available for the upcoming year, and will begin reviewing applications following the Kansas City NCECA Please note: Thomas will be co-lecturing with Ursula Hargens (MN NICE) in "Outside the Academy" (a lecture on alternative education) tentatively scheduled for 12:30 on 3/18 in Conference room C/D. Please consider attending this lecture if you are at NCECA, and make an appointment to talk with Thomas.
All applications will be reviewed and decisions made by May 1, 2016. Please refer to the EAMP section of our website for further details of the program. For further communication, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
