So, if you have been reading this blog regularly (bless you!) you would know that our Company Manager, Tanya Surtees, has been waxing lyrical about her three-year Fellowship Programme at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington DC.  Well, they are calling for applications for new potential Fellows (deadline is December 1st 2009) and we’d like to motivate all you aspiring Arts Managers out there to apply.  It’s truly worth it.  Seriously.

Check it out:

“This fellowship program is designed to provide up to 20 international arts managers with an intensive three-year, four week program on arts management beginning in July 2010. The selected managers will come to Washington, DC, to study arts management at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Through daily classes with Kennedy Center senior staff, seminars, practica, and projects, the fellows will gain practical experience and skills that will be readily transferable to the management of their own organizations. Fellows will be expected to come to the Fellowship with at least one arts management related project that will benefit their home organizations to work on while at the Kennedy Center.

Arts managers with a minimum of four years of experience will be selected for this program. Fellows must be fluent in English. Fellows receive roundtrip air transportation, hotel, per diem, and program materials.

Applications are now being accepted. If you have further questions regarding the program, please contact Joel Hoard at
