ArtistYear Information Session
April 13, 2016
The ArtistYear program provides a unique opportunity for Westphal students graduating this year and alumni up to the age of 28 to make a difference by creating unique arts programs and classes in an underserved Philadelphia public school. ArtistYear Fellows spend a year working full-time and will receive a national service allowance, living stipend, medical insurance, along with weekly coaching and fellows meetings. ArtistYear is now accepting applications for the 2016-2017 program and an information session will be held on Tuesday, April 19 in the Dean’s Conference Room (URBN Center, Floor 1A) at 6pm – pizza included! This unique opportunity is open to designers, performers, visual artists and just about any discipline we teach if you’re interested in arts-based learning, strengthening the social and economic fabric of our City, and a life as a citizen-artist.

Artist-Citizen Service Year launched in 2014 at the Curtis Institute of Music, providing five new Curtis graduates the chance to design curriculum in performance, composition, and artistic expression. Graduates and schools collaborated with community organizations such as Play On, Philly!, Project Home, South Philadelphia High School, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Cooper’s Poynt School, and the Center for Autism Research at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
