Beginning in 2017–18, Curtis alumni will bring their artistry to underserved communities in Philadelphia through the Community Artist Fellowship. Community Artist Fellows are placed in existing partnerships between Curtis and institutions such as schools, hospitals, prisons, and rehabilitation centers. They follow a flexible schedule that balances their work in the community alongside practice and performance time. The Community Artist Fellowship program tailors placements to the discipline, experience, and interests of young Curtis alumni and extends, where possible, work they may have begun as Curtis students through the Community Artist Program (CAP).
A Community Artist Fellow possesses the highest level of artistry along with a deep commitment to collaborating with communities.
The due date for applications for the 2018–19 school year will be announced here early in 2018.
