SHARP Snug Harbor Residency Program
SHARP offers emerging artists a supportive environment to explore their creative development for two months. Artists are provided a studio space on the ground floor of a two-story, nineteenth-century cottage, which has bedrooms on the second level. The unique opportunity is situated within 83 parkland acres of the Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden in the borough of Staten Island. The facility is connected to the art world of New York City, yet secluded from the urban center by a Harbor. Artists receive studio visits from guest artists and curators as part of a mentorship program. Participants are also encouraged to show recent work in the Cultural Center’s galleries or on the grounds. The Residency includes the Edward and Sally Van Lier Fellowship that is funded by New York Community Trust, which provides support for talented, culturally diverse, economically disadvantaged young people who are seriously dedicated to a career in the arts. The Fellowship helps artists in all disciplines at the post-BFA college level to make the transition from formal training to professional careers.  Applications are due Monday, February 17, 2014 for the next cycle.


Organizing For Action is a non-profit, non-electoral, non-partisan organization working on issues-based campaigns like gun violence prevention, immigration reform, climate change and women's issues. HAA member Yvette Heyliger is now a Senior Fellow and has been serving since 2012. If you've ever thought about becoming a Fellow -- or know someone who'd be fantastic at it -- you still have a chance to apply!

This year's Spring Fellows program will be the biggest yet. Ask just about anyone who's been part of this fellowship program, and they'll tell you about the difference they are making in their communities on a local and national level.

Artists--the time is now to marry artistic action with civic action! Fellows have gone on to be leaders in other progressive organizations, and some of them are even working at OFA today.

Being a Spring Fellow is a challenging, but rewarding, experience -- and a great way to build skills. Take advantage of the extended deadline, and encourage folks to apply to be a Spring Fellow by Sunday, January 26th at:
