The Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora (CCCADI) invites applications for their Innovative Cultural Advocacy Fellowship (ICA) designed for 30 to 40-year-old arts-based professionals from historically marginalized communities of color. Founded in 2014, the ICA Fellowship trains mid-career professionals of color for public leadership and management of cultural institutions and nonprofit arts organizations in New York City and across the nation. A noted pioneering initiative in arts advocacy and cultural equity, the ICA Fellowship has been an impetus for radical change in New York City. Now, in its 8th cycle, the Fellowship seeks to involve and increase the number of emerging leaders of color in cultural arts, public policy, and arts advocacy.
Fellows will gain the following:
- Effective strategies firmly rooted in social justice, arts advocacy, and cultural equity models from the Civil Rights era to more recent progressive grassroots arts movements
- Access to executive-level arts professionals through monthly sessions and cultural site visits
- Certification and a generous stipend of $750 for successful program completion
