<nettime-ann> Surdna Foundation Accepting Applications for Arts Teachers Fellowship Program


This was forwarded to me from University of California Institute for Research in the Arts-- but it's a national call, so could include IL educators.

Deadline: November 13, 2009 (Intent to Apply) 

Surdna Foundation Accepting Applications for Arts Teachers Fellowship Program 

The Surdna Foundation has announced the tenth year of a national initiative to support the artistic revitalization of outstanding arts teachers in public arts high schools. 

Through the Surdna Arts Teachers Fellowship Program, fellows will design individualized courses of study that provide both immersion in their own creative work and the opportunity to interact with other professional artists in their fields. 

Teachers will be expected to design a fellowship program that provides opportunities to interact with professional artists and enhances their understanding of current techniques, activity, and thinking in their artistic domain(s). A fellowship program may include study in arts courses; attendance at advanced art-making workshops, festivals, or institutes; residencies at artists' colonies; formal mentor relationships with recognized professional artists; independent study towards the completion of an artistic project (which includes interaction with other professionals), or other artistic pursuits. 

All permanently assigned full- and part-time arts faculty in public arts high schools may apply. Eligible schools include specialized public arts high schools and arts-focused magnet and charter high schools. Teachers of all arts disciplines are eligible ? visual arts, photography, theater, music, dance, film, video, multidiscipline, and creative writing. Applicants must be minimally in their fifth year of teaching arts in high school, and plan to continue as an arts teacher in their specialized public arts high school in 2010-11. 

Twenty awards of up to $5,500 each, with a complementary grant of $1,500 to the fellow's school to support post-fellowship activities, will be made.
