MoCADA Curatorial Fellowship for Young Scholars in the Visual Arts!

October 18, 2010

The Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA)
launches a new curatorial fellowship for young scholars in the visual arts!

Program Dates: February 2011 – February 2012
Application Deadline: November 22, 2010 (postmark date). Email applications
must be received by midnight.

Brooklyn, New York, October 11, 2010 – Today MoCADA announces its Curatorial
Fellowship, made possible through the generous support of the Institute for
Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and the Lambent Foundation, to foster
emerging curators of African descent in the curatorial field. From an open
competition, two individuals will be selected to come to Brooklyn, New York
for the year-long program to be immersed in the conceptual and practical
methods necessary in working as a museum curator.

The successful candidates will work full-time at MoCADA from February 2011
to February 2012. With the guidance of the Exhibitions Director, the fellows
will be led through the process of developing an exhibition idea into an
exhibition proposal, and the realization of the exhibition proposal in a
gallery space. They will also have weekly discussion sessions, attend artist
talks, and be introduced to MoCADA’s professional network through a schedule
of site visits to local institutions, artist studios, and symposia. All of
these aspects will be integral to the fellows experience as they work to
curate their own exhibition at MoCADA at the culmination of the fellowship.
The program’s goal is to provide emerging curators with professional
training to become socially, politically and aesthetically well informed
productive contributors to the museum field, and the field of art at large.

MoCADA is uniquely positioned to establish a curatorial fellowship, having a
mission that is based in arts-inspired curatorial and educational
programming relating to the African Diaspora. Since its inception, the
Museum has provided hands-on vocational and educational opportunities for
undergraduate and graduate students. In celebration of MoCADA’s 10th
Anniversary, it seeks to expand the scope of its exhibition program by
creating a learning initiative geared specifically to burgeoning curators of
African descent.

The Curatorial Fellowship is organized by MoCADA’s Exhibitions Director,
Kalia Brooks, who recently joined MoCADA after serving as the program
facilitator for Independent Curator International’s (ICI) inaugural
Curatorial Intensive in New York City. Brooks is currently an Adjunct
Professor in the Department of Photography and Imaging at New York
University’s Tisch School of the Arts, and a PhD Candidate in Aesthetics and
Art Theory with the Institute for Doctoral Studies in the Visual Arts.

Application Guidelines: Applications must include a 300-word description of
an exhibition idea. Submissions should include an exhibition concept or key
idea, and any artists that the applicant is considering. Also required is a
current resume, two professional recommendations (these can be mailed
directly to MoCADA), a 1 page writing sample, plus a short letter of intent
that outlines why applicants want to participate in The Curatorial
Fellowship, which should include a brief description of a recent exhibition
that has made an impact on the applicant.

Application Requirements: Applicants must have a minimum of a BA or BFA in
Art History, Studio Art, or other related field with a specialized interest
in African/African American/African Diasporan visual arts.

MA or MFA preferred, but not required.
Application Deadline: November 22, 2010 (postmark date). Email applications
must be received by midnight.

Stipend: The program comes with a $25,000 stipend and a small travel

Program Dates: February 2011 – February 2012

Pando – a unique leadership opportunity for Brooklyn College students

October 18, 2010

Are you tired of waiting for politicians to fix the problems in your community?  Let’s give Obama a break and realize that if we want change, that change needs to come from all of us.

Pando is a new organization in NYC that gives you the chance to step up as a leader and find your own solution to a problem in your neighborhood.  Whatever problem you experienced in your community – poverty, poor health, low education standards, or anything else – who better to fix it than you?

Pando is looking for 25 leaders with smart ideas for fixing local problems.  We will support projects that can be carried out in 3 months.  You will receive leadership training and tools to run your project, including tools to raise money, organize events, manage volunteers, and spread the word about your initiative.  A documentary film crew will film your experience.

Iman grew up in the Bronx.  A lot of people in her community eat unhealthy food and are now suffering from obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.  Iman decides to do her part to fix the problem.  She loves kids and wants to teach 15 kids from her neighborhood how to cook nutritious meals.  She hopes that by teaching kids about nutrition in a fun way, they will develop healthy eating habits that last a lifetime.  Iman can submit an application to Pando describing her idea.  If chosen, Pando will help Iman act on her idea and actually run that project successfully.

Why do this?
Make a real difference in your community, while adding leadership experience to your resume.  Show future employers that you have what it takes to be a leader and create positive change!

Become a Project Leader with Pando!
