What are you doing next Tuesday, October 25th?
At 7 pm you should come to Midway Contemporary Art Library (527 Second Avenue Southeast, Mpls, MN) for an excellent presentation by the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) who are in town to talk about the services, opportunities and other support they offer artists. This is a free presentation that will be well worth the time, and perhaps particularly of interest to young artists and students – so help mnartists.org spread the word…
Artists in all disciplines looking for jobs, opportunities, grants and professional development are invited to attend a presentation about the free and low-cost national services and resources that Artspire and the New York Foundation offer to them. Eleanor Whitney, Program Officer for External Affairs and Fiscal Sponsorship from Artspire, a program of the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) will present on Artspire/NYFA’s resources, fundraising and support programs available nationwide for artists at every stage in their careers.
The presentation is geared to individual artists across disciplines and small/emerging arts organizations and will cover Artspire/NYFA’s extensive resources, fundraising and support programs. Visual, performing, literary artists, musicians and filmmakers are all encouraged to attend.
Presenter Eleanor Whitney is a Program Officer for External Affairs at the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) where she works to connect artists to NYFA’s extensive services and resources.
