The Taipei Cultural Center in New York works with the International Society for the Performing Arts (ISPA) for the first time to launch the "2023-2025 Taiwan Fellowship Program," which is calling for two performing arts administrators from Taiwan to participate. Submissions will be accepted from now until July 15.
Selected candidates will become members of ISPA and participate in its annual meeting held in New York every January for three consecutive years to grow their international networks, find new collaborative partners and mentors, and discover renewed inspiration for their careers in the performing arts. According to ISPA, the fellowship program seeks to recruit individuals working in the management of the performing arts who are deeply committed to increasing the global connectivity of the industry, and those who take initiative in their own professional development. The program offers many benefits, for example, the selected candidates can enjoy an annual membership fee, scholarships of nearly NT$100,000 a year, as well as travel and living expenses in New York.
ISPA is a global network of more than 500 leaders in the performing arts with representation from more than 185 cities and all regions of the globe. Its Fellowship Program is created to provide emerging and mid-career performing arts professionals with the opportunity to expand their international networks through membership and attendance at ISPA Congresses. Currently, a total of 68 candidates are participating in this program. Taiwan is the 12th participating country after Singapore, the United States, Canada, the UK, Australia, the Netherlands, Denmark, and others.
Applicants are required to apply online on ISPA's website, and the selected candidates will be announced on the Taipei Cultural Center in New York's website on August 20. For more information, please click here.
