NXTHVN is pleased to announce the opening of its annual open call for Studio and Curatorial Fellows. Founded by Jason Price and Titus Kaphar in 2019, NXTHVN was designed with the core aim of building an alternative model of arts mentorship and career acceleration through a specially designed curriculum.

Each year, NXTHVN welcomes up to seven artists and two curators to participate in its paid 10-month intensive Fellowship Program. Each fellow will receive studio or office space, a stipend, and subsidized housing. The application is open until February 21, 2022.

Selected from an international pool of applicants, fellows relocate to New Haven, Connecticut, to participate in NXTHVN’s mentorship-driven curriculum, which includes professional development sessions led by visiting artists, curators, scholars, and practitioners. Fellows are also matched with a high school apprentice for focused one-on-one mutual learning, which gives the next local generation a chance to grow and excel in creative fields. The fellowship year culminates with an annual group show at a prominent gallery space.

NXTHVN will welcome its fourth cohort of fellows from August 22, 2022, through May 31, 2023. The Fellowship Application is available online and all application materials must be submitted online through Submittable. Selected applicants will be notified in April 2022.
