Genesee Center for the Arts & Education Attending Alliance of Artist Communities Conference
Rochester, NY Rochester NY Region
(ROCHESTER, NY – August 15, 2016) Genesee Center for the Arts & Education is proud to announce that Communications Coordinator Amanda Chestnut has been awarded the 2016 Strokosch Fellowship to attend the Alliance of Artists Communities annual conference. The Strokosch Fellowship is awarded to three emerging African, Latino/a, Asian, Arab or Native American artist residency leaders to support their participation in the conference and pay for travel expenses.

The Alliance of Artists Communities’ 2016 annual conference takes place in Portland, Oregon, October 4-7. Arts leaders, funders, policy-makers, board members, educators and artists from across the globe will explore support for today’s artists and artist-centered approaches to engaging in communities and developing healthy organizations.

“This fellowship will allow me to gain knowledge that can be directly applied to Genesee Center for the Arts & Education, while exploring ways to build community within the arts in Rochester. Having the unique position of being a working artist and employee of the Genesee Center for the Arts & Education allows me a dynamic perspective on what I may learn at the conference.” — Amanda Chestnut, Communications Coordinator
