Intercultural Leadership Institute 2018 for artists, culture bearer & arts professionals.

Application Deadline: Jan 17, 2018Jan 17, 2018Ja

The Intercultural Leadership Institute is a year-long intensive leadership program for artists, culture bearers and other arts professionals.

ILI is a collaborative program of Alternate ROOTS, First Peoples Fund, National Association of Latino Arts & Cultures (NALAC) and PA’I Foundation. The effort grew out of our direct experiences as leaders of these founding cultural organizations. We often found that many personal and professional leadership programs emphasized dominant cultural norms, modes of learning and social approaches that didn’t match our commitment to cultural equity and change-making in our own communities.

SELECTION PROCESS, ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS & APPLICATION SUPPORT
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.

If you have questions or need application support, please join an ILI Informational Call on the dates listed on this page.  You may also contact ILI at info@weareili.org.
