McKnight Fellowships for Media Artists Info Session
Thursday, February 6
FilmNorth is pleased to announce the McKnight Fellowships for Media Artists. The goal of the program is to identify talented Minnesota media artists whose work is of exceptional artistic merit and who are at a career stage beyond emerging. The fellowship program supports established artists by providing significant financial assistance, by creating opportunities to meet with local and national art professionals, by organizing a public discussion panel featuring the fellows, by providing assistance to attend a professional conference in New York or Los Angeles, and by offering four free classes through FilmNorth during the fellowship year.
On February 6, Eric Mueller, program administrator, will conduct a 90-minute “How to Apply” Workshop to review the application process: both its content and technical aspects. He will be joined by Jes Reyes, Artist Career Consultant at Springboard for the Arts, who will give tips on writing an effective artist statement.
