What: Members of NYFA's staff will provide a 90-minute seminar, with a 30-minute Q&A afterward, on Monday, August 10th at 6pm at Vox Populi Gallery. Each of New York Foundation for the Arts' programs and services will be covered with an emphasis on NYFA Source, Fiscal Sponsorship, and the Immigrant Artists Project.
  • NYFA Source: NYFA Source is the most extensive national online directory of awards, services, and programs for artists.
  • Fiscal Sponsorship: Fiscal Sponsorship is a critical way for individual artists, artists' collaborative projects, and emerging arts organizations in all disciplines to apply for funding usually available only to organizations with 501(c)(3) nonprofit status. The right fiscal sponsor will not only allow you to manage your project efficiently, but can actually help artists to raise more money and realize their artistic visions more fully.
  • Immigrant Artists Project: Through the Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program, the bi-monthly IAP Newsletter, and other programming, the Immigrant Artist Project seeks to expand the constituency it serves by nurturing and fostering a community of empowered artists with diverse educational, cultural, and creative backgrounds.
