Artists, culture bearers and arts managers in various stages of career development may apply. Up to 30 people will be selected to participate in the Institute with 12 nominees chosen from the ILI core partners’ memberships and the remaining participants chosen from the applicant field at large. Applications will be reviewed by a panel that includes representatives of the ILI core partner organizations, fellows from the first ILI cohort as well as other nationally recognized leaders in the U.S. arts and cultural field.
At the time an application is submitted, the applicant must be an artist, culture bearer, arts professional and/or administrator. Successful applicants will demonstrate strong leadership potential within the field of arts and culture as well as a deep commitment to community, social change and/or cultural equity. The program will be rigorous and will require commitment to attend three week-long in-person convenings as well as participation in online sessions, peer interaction and other engagement over the course of a one-year period.
All program costs including accommodation and travel will be covered for program participants by ILI and our funding partners.
ILI will be conducted through three intensive multi-day cohort gatherings in addition to a series of opportunities to connect virtually between cohort gatherings. The gatherings will be hosted by core partner organizations over a week-long period. The 2018-19 ILI intensives for the second cohort will occur within the following dates:
- September 12-18, 2018
- January 23-29, 2019
