We will be offering two webinars for all interested applicants.

Tuesday, August 13th, 5:00-6:00 pm

Monday, August 19th, 12:00-1:00 pm

These sessions, led by Program Director Mary Ellen Childs, will be accessed through the online meeting site, Zoom. RSVP to mckfell@thecowlescenter.org, and you will be sent a link to enter the webinar by internet browser on a computer or smart phone.

This information session will be geared towards first-time applicants and focus on frequently asked questions regarding the application materials – – the artistic statement, resume and work sample.  Participants will be able to ask questions via a chat feature, or are encouraged to submit a question by email when you RSVP.

If you plan to submit an Intent to Apply, be aware that local panelists are already in place and viewing performances. Please submit performance information to us using our online calendar forms:

Choreographers:  http://www.mcknightdancechoreo.org/calendar-choreographers/

Dancers:     http://www.mcknightdancechoreo.org/calendar-dancer/

Be sure to give us as much lead time as possible (4-6 weeks is optimal) so that panelists can get your performances on their calendars.


McKnight Fellowships is also happy to share the announcement of a new Fellowship being offered for Socially Engaged Artists. If your work falls into this arena, you can learn more about the program here:  https://pillsburyhouseandtheatre.org/mcknight-artist-fellowships/
