NYFA MARK’12 Bootcamp
Performing, Literary and Visual Artists of the Central, Western
and Southern Regions of New York State
Application Deadline: MONDAY, MAY 14, 2012
New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) is pleased to announce the NYFA MARK’12 Bootcamp program for the Central/Western/Southern regions of New York State. NYFA is working in partnership with our host organization Light Work, Syracuse NY, and outreach partners Cultural Resources Council, Syracuse, NY and Community Arts Partnership of Tompkins County to host the program which will take place over one intensive weekend, June 8-10 and a one-day follow up event on July 7 at Golden Artist Colors in New Berlin, NY. In 2012, modeled on NYFA’s Artist as Entrepreneur Boot Camp, MARK’12 Bootcamp is now open to artists working in the performing and literary arts. NYFA is excited to be able to support the wide variety of creative activities in the region.
MARK is the New York Foundation for the Arts’ (NYFA) program for artists based in New York State, (outside of the five boroughs of New York City) who want a unique opportunity for individualized focus on the professional and business side of their creative practice. MARK is designed to address the concerns of artists living outside of New York City while providing them with a new network statewide.
Presented over one intensive weekend with a follow up event, MARK’12 Bootcamp is a rigorous blend of formal classes, individualized training, networking and group interaction. Participating artists can expect MARK to spark goals and help to define concrete steps while providing individual and group feedback. Up to 40 artists will be selected for this location, encouraging and fostering a community network of cross-disciplinary artists.
Applications should be received by MIDNIGHT on the day of the deadline.
