WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
The Summer Leadership Intensive educational programs are designed specifically for young female artists, age 18-24. (High school graduates and undergraduates only.) These ALI Fellows are chosen from all fields of the fine arts, including (but not limited to) music, dance, theatre, and visual arts. Diversity will be sought for and celebrated.
Unique to our 2020 Intensive, we are inviting all women of any age and field to join us as we host our Summer Leadership Intensive virtually.
WHAT IS THE ALI FELLOW EXPERIENCE?
Similar to athletes that must exercise a singular focus in order to obtain success, artists apply a focused dedication to develop their craft. The Women’s ALI Summer Leadership Intensive offers an attractive supplement to those hours of committed practice and is designed to help young women learn to navigate the business side of their career effectively.
Whether ALI Fellows intend to run a studio, move into administration, or utilize your artistic talents in another discipline, the skills you acquire at the Intensive will serve you at every career juncture and in daily life!
And the ALI Fellow experience continues long after the Intensive is over! Each Fellow is paired with a lasting mentor to offer personal experience and connections, provided potential internship opportunities, and connected with a network of women in the arts that unites women state-wide.
WHAT IS THE COST?
We plan to have full-enrollment scholarships for every ALI Fellow in our 2020 year. Each scholarship is valued at $500 and has been secured through donations and hard work of volunteers. To become an ALI Fellow and receive your scholarship for attendance, you will need to fill out the Scholarships section of the application. You will be asked to provide contact information for a recommender and respond to two short essay questions.
If you are not an ALI Fellow and hoping to join in the 2020 Summer Leadership Intensive you will pay a $15 registration fee. This will give you access to all keynote speakers, partial workshops and activities. We hope to see you register and join for these inspiring days!
IS THE ENTIRE 2020 INTENSIVE VIRTUAL?
The entirety of the 2020 Summer Leadership Intensive is taking place virtually. However, we look forward to hosting all ALI Fellows and their personal mentors at an exclusive event as soon as possible in the 2020 calendar year.
