CREATIVE INTERVENTIONIST FELLOWSHIP

Our Fellowship Program identifies and catalyzes passionate neighborhood residents to discover their leadership and co-create what they want to see in their communities.

The program provides each Fellow with an artist stipend, guides, resources and tools to reimagine their neighborhood with powerful acts of culture and also access to a valuable national network of peers and mentors.

Fellows:

  • Carry out their project over a 12-month period in a specific neighborhood where they are familiar with the challenges and opportunities that exist

  • Collaborate with neighborhood residents and existing local organizations in that neighborhood

  • Propel co-creative action at neighborhood scale in partnership with community leaders, local organizations and residents

  • Create projects that present equitable, sustainable and generative opportunities for communities

  • Fully support their own project including project timelines, budget management, marketing and outreach, with support from their mentor

  • Attend a quarterly call with League fellows from other cities

  • Create written and video documentation of their project for blogs, social media, etc.

  • Attend a yearly convening of all League leaders from each League chapter

We are currently restructuring our Fellowship program. Stay connected when we announce updates by signing up for our mailing list HERE.

I loved the creative aspect of getting involved with people, instead of just a march or protest, we are spreading love. Our interventions get people to think, interact with each other, and recognize issues in the community.

The convening was my highlight. For a few days I really did feel less alone in this work: big things felt possible together.
