The NYFA Grants team will be hosting a series of virtual information sessions designed to help artists build a stronger NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship application. Each session will have a Q & A section where artists can ask the Grants team questions about the application process. All sessions except the 2022 NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship Overview session will be hosted on Zoom. Registration will open two weeks before the event date. All sessions will be recorded and made available on NYFA’s Facebook page.
