The Campaign for a Creative Generation is excited to launch a call for applications to Young and Emerging Leaders Forum.
This yearlong program builds a peer-to-peer network of young and emerging teaching artists within the fields of culture, education, and social change. Jointly hosted by Creative Generation and the International Teaching Artist Collaborative (ITAC), the Young & Emerging Leaders Forum – or YELF – builds from a pilot program launched in 2020. In its design, the program will recognize young teaching artists from across the fields and be responsive to the needs of the cohort fostering a collaborative learning environment based in critical reflection intended to interrogate, mutually share and learn, and radically reimagine future possibilities of one’s work.
The International Teaching Artist Collaborative (ITAC) is committed to creating community among artistic changemakers around the world, and lowering the barriers to participation for all. Their international network focuses on supporting network building, advocacy and professional development for Teaching Artists globally. They believe there is power and value in collaborative learning, shared experiences and establishing connections among their sector.
- The 2023-2024 YELF program will provide:
- Recognition: Providing recognition to those leading innovative work and amplify their contributions to the field; and
- Reflection: Holding space for critical reflection, intended to interrogate knowledge and ways of knowing;
- Resources: Learning through experiential and published resources to broaden perspectives and interconnect ideas.
- They are seeking young and emerging teaching artists from all communities around the globe who wish to connect with, collaborate and share ideas with other teaching artists to further their personal and professional networks, collaborations, and development.
- Selection of participants: June 12 – 16, 2023
- Announcement of 2023 – 2024 cohort: June 19 – 23, 2023
- Kickoff meeting: to be scheduled week of July 3, 2023.
