Free Event: Introduction to NYFA Grant Opportunities

NYFA Resources and Service Talk
The deadline for grants for artists of up to $7,000 from NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship is January 25, 2017. Officials from NYFA will be at the League to help you learn more about these grant opportunities.

The talk will also offer a focus on the NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship, an unrestricted grant of $7,000, for which artists residing in New York State are eligible.  Information on the application process and upcoming cycle will be provided. NYFA staff will offer tips and advice for putting together a strong application.  An opportunity for Q&A will be provided.
