Western States Arts Federation (WESTAF), in partnership with its five Regional Arts Organization (RAO) counterparts, is pleased to announce the second round of the National Leaders of Color Fellowship, a transformative leadership development experience curated by WESTAF in order to establish multicultural leadership in the creative and cultural sector. By partnering with the other RAOs, the program has expanded nationwide and its mission has become a national endeavor. 

During this no-cost eight-month fellowship, selected fellows receive access to specialists in the field, strategic learning objectives determined to deepen thought on anti-racist and culturally-oriented leadership practices, and national-level network and cohort building. Upon completion of this program, participants transition to alumni status and have opportunities to collaborate with the USRAO in their region as advisors, funding panelists, and/or other professional capacities.

The deadline to submit an application is Monday, October 16, 2023.
