Flight School Fellowship: Professional Development for Pittsburgh Artists
Deadline: 02 January, 2012
Rethink Your Career Without Rethinking Your Art.
Flight School combines the New York City-based Creative Capital Foundation’s nationally renowned Professional Development Program with a unique series of follow-up sessions. The Fellowship specifically looks at strategies for setting and achieving goals in fundraising, financial planning, marketing, and other non-artistic aspects of life as a professional artist.
The 2011 Fellows have gone on to do some great work, premiering new works on stage, books, video, galleries, and record albums.
