TFA hosts the Emerging Artist Fellowship (EAF); 2023 is the fourth cohort. Fellows are thriving early-career artists. They demonstrate not only a superior level of mastery in their craft, but also the aptitude to become successful professionals leading well-managed creative enterprises. The Fellowship provides technical training, mentoring, consulting, branding, and a $2,500 award to assist each fellow with the successful development and launch of their creative business. Through increased visibility, marketing and networking we assist each one to integrate into local and regional markets and access professional development. TFA is hosting five Fellows with diverse backgrounds and artistic skills. TFA will provide monthly group check-ins, a summer fellowship retreat that includes small business development training and touring artist-led communities, offer one on one support tailored to the needs of each artist, provide a video and profile essay about each artist, and increase the artists visibility across the state and region with a gallery show (in-person and virtual), social media promotion, and newsletter sharing.
